Later this month, Apple is going to host another quarterly earnings report. The company won’t be breaking down individual numbers, but we’ll get a broad look at how well things are going for the iPhone company. Based on a recent report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, things looked pretty good for Apple in the first quarter.

CIRP has a new research point out today, outlining that Apple edged out Samsung for the most smartphone activations in the March quarter of this year. The lead is small, though, with Apple’ iPhone coming in with 36% of smartphone activations in the U.S., while Samsung had 34 percent. Meanwhile, LG and Motorola came in with 11% and 10 percent of activations:

“Among smartphone brands, in the March 2019 quarter Apple and Samsung led with 36% and 34% of the activations, respectively. LG and Motorola were in third and fourth place, with 11% and 10% of activations, respectively.”

That’s solid news for Apple, but of course the official quarterly earnings report might not be as positive when it drops later this month. Apple is in a bit of hot water when it comes to iPhone demand, too, with the company facing a class action lawsuit over securities fraud related to iPhone sales numbers.
