iOS Usage Inching Closer to Android in United States

Android iOS LogosThe 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?
