iPhone 5 Helps Apple Grab 53% Of US Market Share More Than Android – After going through a lot of upgrading and changing in these 5 years, Google’s Android has finally matured enough to become a direct competitor (and even a leader) to iOS. According to recent reports, Android captured 75% of worldwide smartphone market share but apparently, the US is still a danger zone for Android. It has been barely a few months since the iPhone 5 was released and it has already boosted iPhone’s US market share to 53%.
iPhone 5 Helps Apple Grab 53% Of US Market Share More Than Android
Kantar Worldpanel Comm Tech has just released a report which goes on to say that Apple’s popular iPhone has grabbed 53% of US market share pushing Android back to just 42%. That really is a big change from last year, when Android conquered the market with 53% and iPhone only had a measly 37% control over the US smartphone market. Of course those statistics are likely going to be affected if RIM manages to nail it with its upcoming BlackBerry 10 OS.
Here is what the report states,
“The latest smartphone sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech shows Apple has achieved its highest ever share in the US (53.3 percent) in the latest twelve weeks, with the iPhone 5 helping to boost sales.”
Those guys at Cupertino will be certainly happy to hear this as Apple’s stock has been struggling to keep up and has fallen quite low. Let’s see what happens in the coming days!
