Over 10% of U.S. Mobile Phone Users Now on an iPhone

comScore today released the results of its latest survey of mobile phone usage in the United States, noting that Apple has reached a milestone in surpassing a 10% share of the U.S. mobile phone market. As has been the recent trend, Apple again led the major phone manufacturers in growth between the three-month period ending in June and the period ending in September, growing by 1.3 percentage point to hit 10.2% of the U.S. market.



Narrowing down to smartphones, Apple’s iOS took 27.4% of the market, up 0.8 percentage points since the previous three-month period but trailing Android’s 44.8% share and 4.6 percentage point growth. Apple stood at 9.8% of the overall mobile phone market and 27.3% of the smartphone market in last month’s release of the firm’s rolling three-month data sets.



comScore’s data tracks installed user base rather than new handset sales, making it more reflective of real-world usage but slower to respond to shifting market trends than some other studies.
