According to new data from Counterpoint Research, the iPhone now has over half of the US mobile market for the first time.

Since 2010, Android has been the largest mobile operating system in the US, but according to Counterpoint Research, iOS phones passed them with Android in June of this year. The Financial Times writes in an article:

“Apple has overtaken Android devices to account for more than half of smartphones used in the US, giving the iPhone maker an edge over its rival as it pushes into sectors including finance and healthcare.

The 50 per cent landmark the iPhone’s highest share since it launched in 2007 was first passed in the quarter ending in June, according to data from Counterpoint Research. Some 150 devices using Google’s Android operating system, led by Samsung and Lenovo, accounted for the rest.”

In the world market, however, Google’s Android is ahead of Apple’s iOS. According to Statcounter’s figures for August, Android had a little over 71 percent of the global mobile market, while iOS then landed at close to 28 percent.
