The global market for refurbished smartphones in the second half of 2020 showed growth in most regions. This growth more than compensated for the decline in the first half of 2020, so that the overall year-over-year growth was 4% compared to 2019. Such data are cited by analysts Counterpoint, expecting that this year the growth will be greater.

Market growth slowed sharply in the first half of 2020, mainly due to COVID-19, however, in the second half of the year, demand and supply in the market for refurbished smartphones increased. When markets opened, sales in all regions increased over the same period in 2019.

Analysts point out that Apple products are in strong demand in the refurbished smartphone market. In the second half of last year, Apple’s share in the global market for new smartphones was just over 13%, while in the secondary market it was over 44%. In addition, the average selling price of Apple smartphones in this market is almost three times higher than the average of competitors. This is helping Apple grow its user base, analysts said, as many buyers of used and remanufactured devices are buying iPhones for the first time.

According to Bloomberg, Apple does not expect iPhone sales to fall in 2022 amid a general slowdown in the smartphone market. The Cupertino-based company expects iPhone demand to continue strong and has asked suppliers to produce 90 million iPhone 14 models, which is the same as the iPhone 13 production in the same period last year.

Apple expects to release about 220 million iPhones in 2022, which is the same level as 2021 production. Bloomberg sources said that Apple could weather the downturn in the smartphone market because Apple’s customer base is still willing to spend money on premium devices.

For the first time in five years, Apple is due to radically change the design of its flagship smartphones: judging by the available data, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will lose the notch that appeared in the iPhone X and will receive screens with two cutouts. Some people call these cutouts an exclamation point, others think they look like the letter i.

While this change has been met with mixed reception, according to user feedback on social media, it does allow for more effective screen real estate. This note provides a comparison of the screens of the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro.

This design, in theory, will allow more icons and other information to be displayed in the status bar on either side of the cutouts.

This week, Apple released another beta version of iOS 16 to developers, which returned the battery percentage icon to the top right of the screen. However, not everyone liked this decision.
