For several years, Apple remains the undisputed leader in the U.S. smartphone market , at the end of May this year, it accounts for almost 42%, while the closest pursuer – South Korean company Samsung – only 28% of the market. Recently analysts comScore published the results of his new study, where the painting of smartphone manufacturers virtually unchanged, but the performance of operating systems deserve attention.
The first time in a long time iOS increased its share of the U.S. market. Compared to February of this year in May, it rose from 41.3% to 41.9%. But Android and Windows Phone distinguished stagnation: the share of operating systems remained at previous levels – 52.1% and 3.4%, respectively. While BlackBerry lost another 0.6% of the market.
Given that in this period, Apple did not present any “iron” of new products, such alignment makes you wonder. Throughout the year, Android adds significantly with iOS , but this time the operating system from Apple has pulled ahead.
Certainly, Android-devices continue to control more than half of the U.S. market. But it is not so much to the extent of how the dynamics of its increase or decrease. As repeatedly stated by Tim Cook, Apple’s not chasing the market shares, but its growth at a time when competitors are treading water, worthy of respect.
Total number of U.S. smartphone increased by four percent compared to February and reached 169 million devices. Most experts believe that this is largely due to Apple.
