less then 50% use iOS
Android and others are less likely to use Safari
Not all iOS users use Safari (I use Chrome)

But 62% of iOS users use Safari could be correct.

considering the fact that it comes on overy single Mac device, this is understandable. Furthermore, even though I like the features of Firefox & Chrome...








Safari is much snappier.

Nothing surprising about this data. If you live in the US it may just seem impossible. However, the majority of Android devices are sold in Asia. Many of them are purchased without a data plan. Most telcos there will sell one to you for about $100 (or give it for free depending on your plan) if you re-up your contract. Plans typically do not require data. People buy them because slab touchscreen phones with big screens are "cool." Non one wants to be seen with an old fashioned keypad device. However, these Android devices are used simply to make calls and for SMS. Hence although many devices are sold, the browser usage traffic registered is low.
