Since Apple withdrew from the Russian market, the market share of iPhone has not returned. Earlier, analysts from MTS Corporation stated that in the Russian mobile phone market in April of this year, Samsung ranked first (with a market share of 26%), Xiaomi ranked second (with a market share of 20%), the realme brand entered the top three in sales (with a market share of 1.2%), Apple iPhone ranked fourth (with a market share of 10.3%), and the market share of Honor phones ranked fifth.

According to the Russian Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media, Maksut Shadayev, who spoke at the Russian Internet Forum, because it is not very convenient for Russian users to use Apple phones for payment and application downloads, the future retention of iPhones in Russia will become less and less, and its market share by the end of next year will be reduced by half. Overall, the market share of Chinese brand mobile phones will continue to increase.
