iPhone 5 Helps Apple Secure 53% of Smartphone Sales -
12-25-2012, 04:23 AM
Kantar Worldpanel published its latest research on Friday, showing that Apple took 53.3 percent of smartphone sales in the U.S. over the last 12 weeks. That span includes the launch of the iPhone 5, which was the strongest start ever for an Apple handset. |
Apple's gains were Android's losses, as Google's platform — available on a range of devices from multiple manufacturers — saw its share drop 10.9 percentage points year over year. Apple, meanwhile, surged, taking 17.5 percentage points more than in 2011.
