Apple has beaten Samsung for the first time in four years to emerge as the top smartphone vendor. The information comes from a new report by Gartner, which says that the Cupertino tech giant sold more smartphones than Samsung in the fourth quarter of 2020. Apple is selling more iPhones and generating higher profits, which is bad news for the South Korean major Samsung.

The success of the iPhone 12 series is the reason behind Appleā€™s market domination in the fourth quarter.
