Omdia’s Smartphone Model Market Tracker report has claimed that Apple’s iPhone XR dominated the global smartphone market in 2019. This is a new development in the science and technology field.

Apple shipped an estimated 46.3 million iPhone XR units across 2019, while the iPhone 11, the new Apple mid-ranger, managed 37.3 million shipments in 2019.

“Apple has consistently owned the first and second positions in the global smartphone model shipment ranking, with the company maintaining this dominant position for more than five years running,” Jusy Hong, smartphone research and analysis director at Omdia said in a statement.

“By limiting the number of models it offers compared to its top competitors, Apple has been able to concentrate its sales on a few smartphones that have broad appeal, like the iPhone XR,” Hong added.

While Apple accounted for first place and second place, Samsung rounded out the top 5 with the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A20 attaining shipments of 30.3 million, 24.2 million and 23.1 million units respectively.

Amazon has turned on a new feature in Prime Videos apps for Apple devices that lets users buy or rent TV shows and movies, using the in-app payment feature.

Earlier, customers using the Prime Video app from an iOS device or Apple TV would have to first purchase or rent the movie elsewhere — like through the Amazon website or a Prime Video app on another device, such as the Fire TV, Roku or an Android device and had to complete the transaction on Amazon’s website.

When users log in to the Prime Video app, there should be a message reading, “Browse, rent, or buy new release movies, popular TV shows, and more — now within the app.”

The move applies currently to Amazon Prime users in the US, the UK and Germany.
