Customer loyalty:

A survey report included in the research shows that Huawei’s ecosystem products have a high add-on rate, exceeding Apple’s. It also reflects that non-HarmonyOS users want to switch over to HarmonyOS once they use the phone and retain it longer than Apple.

Aside from selling phones, a firm can also route other businesses to earn profit, for example, Apple earns a large chunk of annual revenue just from Apple ecosystem and software services.

Taking its own approach, Huawei is also looking to create and expand around HarmonyOS with more professional collaboration in the Chinese developer community. This is helping to simplify app actions in HarmonyOS within a few interactions. The ease of access to basic services is helping users to achieve more by doing less with HarmonyOS.

To conclude, Canalys noted that users who purchased the iPhone also want to buy its successor model. Huawei customers are now doing the same and the researcher noted that this action is happening even more than before, surpassing Apple and its other competitor.
