Android loses 8% of its global OS market share to the iPhone

In a new report, StockApps noted that Google’s Android mobile operating system’s market share has fallen from 77.32 percent in 2018 to 69.74 percent in January 2022. While the most popular OS has lost 7.58% of the market over the past five years, Apple’s iOS has increased from 19.4% to 25.49%.

Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS dominate the smartphone operating system (OS) space. Today 7 out of 10 phones run on the Android OS, while two of the remaining three are most likely to be iOS powered. Occasionally, one out of those three will be using one of the other less known OS’. However, Android’s dominance is coming under increasing pressure from the other players if we go by market data.

Although Android is the first choice in most regions, the North American market is dominated by iOS and the competition between the two mobile operating systems is fierce.
