Android v iOS market share 2018

In February, we examined the Android v iOS battle of 2017.

Our latest data looks at Q2 2018. We see a slight loss for Android in Canada, reversing the 2017 trend. Android also lost out in Argentina, Colombia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Egypt, and most notably India, where KaiOS has made inroads into both Android and iOS due to a surge in popularity of feature phones and a fascinating evolution of the mobile landscape.

iOS usage increased in Canada, Spain, France, Ireland, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Nigeria, the US and UK. Only four countries included in our study - Australia, Brazil, India and Malaysia - registered losses for the OS, suggesting Q2 was a decent quarter for Apple.

The following statistics are based on mobile web traffic over Q2 2018 to a global network of partner websites using the DeviceAtlas device detection platform.
