With the shipment of 50.4 million iPhones in the third quarter, Apple pulled down Xiaomi and regained its second place in the global smartphone manufacturer rankings.

Apple has benefited from launching the iPhone 13 earlier than last year. According to IDC estimates, overall iPhone shipments have grown by more than 20% compared to the same period last year, but severe component supply disruptions have also affected supply. When Apple Chief Executive Cook announced the earnings report on Thursday, he estimated that the cost in the last quarter due to supply bottlenecks was about $6 billion. If consumers order an iPhone today, they will have to wait until the end of November or even December to get the goods.

Cook said on Thursday that iPhone 13 demand is “strong”, but inventory in the supply chain is still low. Whether it is an upgrade of an old phone or a switch from an Android system to an iPhone, the buying momentum continues to grow. Apple did not provide specific figures but said that both aspects have double-digit growth.

Samsung Electronics’ shipments dropped by 14% to 69 million, but it still maintained its No. 1 position in the industry. Samsung Electronics was also affected by the same bottleneck and chose not to release the popular version of Galaxy Note.

Xiaomi’s smartphone shipments decreased by 4.6% from the same period last year to 44.3 million units, ranking third.
