BlackBerry Limited has released the thirteenth Good Mobility Index Report , which shows increase an in iOS activations, continuing the trend previously seen with new iPhone releases.
iOS rebounded to regain some of its previous losses in device activations, building its lead from 64 percent to 66 percent. This continues a trend among Good-activated devices where new iPhone launches result in an uptick in iOS market share, says Billy Ho, Executive vice president, Enterprise Product and Value Added Solutions, BlackBerry. Android market share fell slightly to 31 percent, while Windows dropped to two percent.
Heterogeneity seems to have taken hold in the tablet market, as the dominant lead iOS once had now appears to have eroded despite taking market share back from Android and Windows, says Ho. iOS rose from 64 percent to 71 percent of all tablet activations, while Android and Windows fell to 21 percent and 8 percent, respectively.
iOS ruled in regulated industries for the third quarter in a row, maintaining or growing huge leads in public sector (83 percent), financial services (77 percent), education (77 percent) and insurance (68 percent). After pulling ahead of iOS in high tech for the first time last quarter, Android maintained its lead with 52 percent of all activations in high tech and emerged with a slight lead over iOS in transportation.
