Today we return to usage statistics to see where Apple stands globally. In this case today, we will see how for the first time Apple is in the first position in terms of Internet use, despite the fact that Android has a larger market share, not counting tablets. Including tablets, iOS is positioned as the most widespread mobile operating system.
Just today, StatCounter, that web analysis and statistics tool, has released global Internet usage data on mobile devices. That is, which are the devices that use the Internet the most. For the first time, Apple and Samsung have overtaken Nokia in January 2013.
In this first month , Apple got 25.86% , followed closely by Samsung (22.69%), and Nokia in third position with 22.15%. In the last year Nokia is one of the companies that has lost the most share, despite the fact that Apple almost lost 3%. In the same way it is important to point out that Samsung has increased its share by 7% compared to the same month last year.
In the second graph you can see the brutal drop of Symbian OS, the 10% rise of Android, and the iPhone and iPod touch -the iPad doesn’t fit- still in the middle. If we add the iPad in the statistics, by the data of NetApplications, iOS occupies the 60% of quota, during the month of January.
