Infographic: In-Flight Usage of iOS Devices Trumps Android


If someone is connected to in-flight Wi-Fi next to you on an airplane, chances are they are using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. According to an infographic published by in-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo, which can be found on most Virgin America, Air Canada, American Airlines and Delta Airlines flights, iOS devices continue to trump Android smartphones and tablets in in-flight Wi-Fi usage.

Apple products account for 84-percent of devices connected to in-flight Wi-Fi, while Android represents just 16 percent of connected devices, according to the latest numbers. In terms of smartphones alone, the iPhone has a 73-percent lead, followed by Android at 26-percent and BlackBerry and Windows Phone at less than 1-percent combined. 

In general, tablets edge out laptops in connectedness at 35-percent to 33-percent, with smartphones following close behind at 32-percent. The top four browsers being used to connect to the web, in order, are Safari, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Top in-air activities include surfing the web, work emails and reports, personal email and social networking.
