iPhone Predicted to Overtake Android Market Share in 2015
It looks like 2015 may be the year that many Apple fans have been waiting for with the Yankee Group Survey predicting that the company’s iPhone market share will overtake android.
Apples share of the market slipped recently and it’s also caused a big dip in their share price, but with the rise of the iPhone 5 and other new phone models expected this year with much sought after features, its looking rosy once again for Apple.
Yankee’s survey covered 16,000 smartphone users in the United States and they found out that over 91% of iPhone users are planning to upgrade once again, to the iPhone and that only 76% of android users will be re-upgrading.
One spokesperson had this to say about the results..
Think of the Apple and Android ecosystems as two buckets of water. New smartphone buyers — mostly upgrading feature phone owners — fall like rain into the two big buckets about equally, with a smaller number falling into Windows Phone and BlackBerry buckets. However, the Android bucket leaks badly, losing about one in five of all the owners put into it. The Apple bucket leaks only about 7 percent of its contents, so it retains more of the customers that fall into it. The Apple bucket will fill up faster and higher than the Android one, regardless of the fact that the Apple bucket may have had fewer owners in it to begin with.
With more and more customers returning to their iOS devices, its looking like a bright future for Tim Cook and Apple, but with dark secrets and a relentless fight from android and google products, can they maintain the lead into the future?
