Our latest dive into Android v iOS market share compares data from Q2 2019 with the previous year.

There were positive signs for iOS in Italy, Poland, Egypt, Norway and Turkey.

Naturally, Android benefits where iOS drops in share. Google's mobile OS enjoyed healthy uplifts in India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, France and South Korea.

In the UK, there's now just a 0.32% difference between the two mobile OS giants. In Canada, it's also tight with only 1.41% market share between them.
