• U.S. Smartphone Market Gap Between Apple and Android Lessens Even More for June Quarter



    A new report from research firm comScore shows that Apple remains dominant in the smartphone market in the U.S. during the June quarter and was the only top-five OEM to show profit over a three-month time frame. It was noted that during the month of June, iPhone shares grew 44.1% in the U.S. market with a 1.5% quarter over quarter increase as well. This information comes from comScore’s MobiLens tracker.

    The top five companies other than Apple consisted of Samsung, HTC, Motorola, and LG. It was noted that all electronic companies had declines in marketshare during the quarter. Samsung dropped to 28.1% (a 0.2 point decrease), Motorola ended the quarter at 4.9% marketshare, LG ended the quarter at 8.3% marketshare, and HTC ended with 3.4% marketshare dropping the most of 0.4% for the quarter.



    Although Apple’s iOS system is becoming increasingly popular, Android’s operating system still dominates the U.S smartphone martket. However, Google’s marketshare dropped to 51.6% from 52.4% as more and more people are switching over to iOS. This drop for Android lessens the gap between the two by just 7.5 points now. With Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus rumored to unveil next month, it is possible that even more people will be switching over to iOS.
