Apple iPhones have reportedly overtaken Android smartphones in the U.S market as they currently account for more than half of all smartphones used in the country.
According to report from Financial Times, Apple overtook android to pass the 50% share of smartphones used in the country.
The iPhone dominated the smartphone ecosystem in June to claim 50 percent of the US market share, while around 150 other mobile brands using Google’s Android operating system, led by Samsung and Lenovo accounted for the rest.
It is interesting to note that the Apple iPhone has never for once outnumbered Android devices since 2010.  In the early release days of the iPhone, iOS was never near a 50% market share, the market was dominated by Android smartphones with brands such as Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, etc.
However, in the second quarter of 2022, there was a strong trend of Android users migrating to iOS devices. It appears that the tables have turned. This is a remarkable feat for Apple as the company achieves the highest-ever share of the American.
On a global level, Android phone users have declined to just under 70%, a decline from the 77% share of the global smartphone market in 2018.
iPhones on the other hand have seen an international growth to 25% of the world’s phones, an increase from the 20% four years ago.
According to report, in the second quarter of 2022, most of the phones sold were from five brands: Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo.
Apple continues to dominate the premium smartphone market holding 57% of sales in the segment. With the launch of its latest iPhone 14 set to happen in the coming weeks, the company is showing no signs of slowing down.
The iPhone 14 lineup, specifically the iphone 14 pro will likely feature the exclusive A16 Bionic, a pill and hole-punch cutout for the TrueDepth front-camera array, 48-megapixel Wide camera (with even larger camera bumps), and more. There is no doubt that these will be the best iPhones yet.

Cross-section of the app

“So Shogun in UNIBEN can then decide that this is going to be his major source of income, and he gives himself targets to sell to everyone in his dormitory.
“The PoS guy can use it. Someone in an office where people travel a lot can use it. Someone in a church where there’s going to be a lot of travel can use it.”
