Apple’s iOS Trumped Google’s Android This Christmas

As far as shopping is concerned, Apple’s iOS was way more handy than Google’s Android services. In a press release by IBM, it was stated in clear words that this Yuletide has not been very good to Google. But Apple is on cloud nine. See the statistics and a consistent pattern emerges. 

iOS sales were over five times as numerous as Android. While Android accounted for 4.6%, iOS was way up there at 23%. This is a wide margin indeed and it looks like Google will have a hard time catching up with Apple despite all its moon-shots. Employers of iOS shelled out approximately $94 in contrast to Android users who spent a measly $48. 

As for the traffic figures they too were quite divergent for the two rivals. Apple was at 32.6% while Google was stuck at 14.8%. Whichever way you look at it, Apple is in a league of its own. And while the rumor mill may favor Android, the fact of the matter is that Apple’s iOS is a champion that remains undefeated. 

The only sticking point here is that this data comes from the US market where iOS has a smaller share. But the legitimate question ought to be why people don’t use Android phones for making online purchases or Net surfing? Well, the trend is there without a rhyme or a reason. And while Apple’s share of the smart phone industry may not be that high, when it comes to the reputation of its iOS, it is right on target.
