iOS And Android Cover 80% Major Market Share In Mobile OS

iOS And Android Cover 80% Major Market Share In Mobile OS
Following the report of ComScore, which took a survey during March-April-May on Mobile operating systems in market shows that Apple and Google continue to gain a major market segment with 80% of mobile uses relying on either of the two. Google's Android is undoubtedly the most popular and commenly used in the smartphones today which has a market share of 50.9%. Android is now delivered in Samsung, Motorola, HTC and many other brands that makes it affordable in all budget ranges. Samsung's quantitative approach has worked very well for the company and for Android market.

There were over 234 million people in the United states aged 13 that use mobile devices. When we are considering the hardware devices available in the market, Samsung is at the peak with 25.7% of mobile subscribers using Samsung devices. After Samsung, its LG with a market share of 19% followed by the strongest company Apple standing  with 15% of global users having iOS devices followed by Motorola and HTC with 12% and 6% respectively.Among all the companies, Apple's growth rate is significally high followed by Samsung and the remaining companies have faced a decline in subscribers.

Apple being the second in gaining major market segment which is 31.9% has increased because of the new iPad and iPhone4S which has broken every achievement record in sales. Users really liked the new iPad's Retina display which made every thing look beautiful and the main reason for the success of Apple is the iOS and the development. Application developers din't have to spend hours of coding on iPhone and then do the same for iPad. An app build and designed for iPhone will also work on iPad, its just that the developers will need to improve the graphics to support the retina display. So if you have purchased an app for iPhone then you can very well use it on your iPad or iPod. The stability in hardware and iOS platform has helped Apple in building the world's largest application store - AppStore with over 500,000 apps in which 200,000 are specifically designed for iPad.

iOS vs Android

The future is, what we believe in Apple's favour because there are not many hardware upgrades frequently. One iPhone launched in a year would mean the successor will be available only after 15 months which gives pretty good time for developers to sit and enjoy the benefits of their apps where as in Android development, developers will have to keep updating their applications in order to support the new devices which is a continuous process. That is the reason why applications are more in iOS compared to Android even though the market share of Android is more than the twice share of Apple.
