More than half of US smartphones are iPhones

For the first time in the history of the smartphone market, the majority of smartphones in the United States are not Android models.

According to the latest figures from Counterpoint Research (via Financial Times), the proportion of iPhone owners in the United States recently rose above 50%, with the rest of the market being taken up by Android models.

Year after year, the proportion of iPhone smartphones is progressing

Since the arrival of the first iPhone in 2007, the proportion of Apple's smartphones has always been below 50%. Still in the second quarter of 2022, this figure was 48%. This increase is mainly due to the success of the latest iPhone 13 and iPhone SE, and the upward trend should continue thanks to the iPhone 14 released on September 16. Note that this range will see the arrival of the iPhone 14 Plus, the first reasonably priced iPhone equipped with a large 6.7'' (17 cm) screen, previously reserved for the more expensive Pro models.
