Report Claims iPhones Now Have More Than 50% Of Smartphones In Use In The US

Apple’s iPhones now account for more than half of all smartphones being used in the United States, according to a new report.

Citing research by Counterpoint Research, the Financial Times reports that the iPhone is now being used by more than 50% of the smartphone-carrying United States population, despite there being just a single model compared to more than 150 different Android phones in circulation.

“Operating systems are like religions — never significant changes. But over the past four years the flow has consistently been Android to iOS,” said Counterpoint’s research director, Jeff Fieldhack. “This is a big milestone that we could see replicated in other affluent countries across the globe.”

Apple is getting ready to announce four new iPhones next week, with September 7 set to see the iPhone 14 lineup become official. Apple will be hoping to get customers to switch from Android to iPhones, something that will no doubt help ensure that its upwards trajectory is maintained.

At a time when the smartphone market is no longer growing as it once was, enticing customers to switch is one way that Apple can grow its iPhone installations worldwide, not just in the United States.

If Apple’s iPhone 14 lineup is indeed announced on September 7, expect them to be made available for pre-order on September 9 with orders arriving on September 16.
