A report by an independent technology focused analyst house Catalys, has claimed that Apple's iPhone is losing market space to other smart phone manufacturers.


According to a report by Mashable, the shipment of notebooks, tablets and smartphones reached 308.7 million in the first quarter of 2013 which is 37 percent more than last year's figure for same quarter.

At present, Google's Android is dominating the mobile market by making up for 60 percent of shipments. Apple holds only 19 percent of this market.

Samsung and HTC have raised the bar of innovation and technology by manufacturing smarter devices, whereas Apple's iPhone is losing its position since its launch in 2007.

Apple needs to improvise its product growth as the iPhone user interface is outdated and its hardware requires revival.
