Areppim Mobile OS Market Share

areppim.pngAreppim has a chart showing how OS market share has changed over time. The chart is based on data from StatCounter Global Stats which means it’s based on browser views (user agents) as opposed to OS device shipments.

Over the last year, iOS market share has been stable while Android has increased at a monthly rate of 2.17%.

As these numbers are based on browser views they might better represent the installed base than OS device shipments. However, with the trend for people using apps rather than the web, measuring OS market share this way might have it’s own inherent biases.
