iPhone sales in China experienced a 19% drop during the first quarter, marking the device’s worst performance since the impact of Covid-19 in 2020, according to data from an independent firm cited by Bloomberg News.

During this period, Apple fell to third place in the Chinese market, roughly level with rival Huawei, according to Counterpoint estimates. The weakness seen in iPhone sales is notable, especially during the first quarter, which is traditionally a period of increased consumption due to the Lunar New Year holidays in China.

In contrast, Huawei saw growth of almost 70%, highlighting its resurgence in the premium segment that Apple used to dominate.

Although China remains one of the biggest markets for Apple, the business there has faced growing challenges after Beijing stepped up its ban on foreign devices at state-backed companies and government agencies.
