A new report shows that Apple's share of the global smartphone market fell during the second quarter to its lowest level in four years.

   Apple had 13.1 percent of the worldwide market, ABI Research said Friday, down from 16.6 percent a year ago. That's the lowest level since the third quarter of 2009, two years after the launch of the first iPhone.

   Apple sold 31.2 million iPhones in the April-to-June period, according to ABI, up from 26 million in the same period a year ago. But the company's sales growth isn't keeping pace with the overall smartphone market, which grew 52 percent from last year.

   Samsung, the world's largest maker of smartphones, also saw a drop in market share.
