Although Android still accounts for more than half of US smartphone shipments, Apple gained 10% market share in the June quarter compared to the same quarter last year, with both Android and RIM losing around 4%.
With the new iPhone reportedly on the way in September, Apple will undoubtedly see a further surge in demand. Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston said in a statement…
“Android remains the number one platform by volume in the United States, but its market share is approaching a peak and Apple iOS has been gaining ground,”
Overall demand is down to one of the slowest ever growth rates, with U.S. shipments falling 5 percent in the second quarter to just under 24 million.
