iOS vs. Android: All the numbers in one place

iOS vs. Android: All the numbers in one place

It’s the biggest battle in mobile — Apple’s iOS vs. Google’s Android. The two platforms are opposites in a number of key areas, but they do have one thing in common: they’re both hugely popular right now. Market research firms constantly pit one mobile platform against the other in an effort to identify trends for their clients, but different data from different firms tends to paint different pictures. In an effort to provide a more comprehensive analysis of the iOS vs. Android battle, TIME’s Harry McCracken compiled recent data from a wide range of key sources. In the end, Android clearly controls more of the market while iOS pulls in more money, but that’s hardly the whole story. For the rest of McCracken’s conclusions, check out his full analysis.
