The latest numbers by comScore reveal that iOS continues to make steady gains on Android based on market share in the United States. According to the study, conducted during a three month period ending July, iOS had a market share of 40.4-percent among American smartphone subscribers aged 13 or over. That number reflects a 1.2-percent gain in market share for iOS, which sat at 39.2-percent in April.
The leading mobile operating system in the United States continues to be Android, which had its 52-percent market share in April slip to 51.8-percent in July. Apple was able to close the gap on Android thanks in part to continued declines from both BlackBerry (5.1% to 4.3%) and Symbian (0.5% to 0.3%), and flat growth of the Windows Phone platform. With a new iPhone incoming, could iOS eclipse Android?
