The iPhone XR was the best-selling smartphone of 2019

Aisha Malik for MobileSyrup:

Apple’s iPhone XR was the best-selling smartphone in the world in 2019, according to new data from London-based research firm Omdia. The research firm reports that Apple shipped 46.3 million iPhone XR devices last year, which is more than double the 23.1 million shipped in 2018.

And for good reason. It’s a great phone. I switched to the XR after years of Android devices and — in the year since I got mine — I’ve been really impressed. The battery lasts forever, the system is still snappy and smooth. I’m not surprised it’s done so well.
