For the first time in history, there are more iPhones in use in the US than any other type of smartphone. Mentioning data from analytics company Counterpoint Research, the Financial Times writes the iPhone overtook the entire Android ecosystem in June, to claim 50 percent of the US market share.
By doing this, Apple reached its highest-ever share of the American smartphone market. Apple accomplished the feat on the back of the iPhone’s “active installed base,”. It is a metric that takes into account all the people who are using an iOS device after purchasing one used.
Apple defeated the premium smartphone demand in Q2, 2022, with the iPhone illustrating 57% of all sales in the part and displaying no signs of slowing down.
