    Kantar Worldpanel has released new smartphone operating system market share data for the third calendar quarter of 2015, providing a regional breakdown of Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and other mobile platform adoption in the U.S., Europe, China, Japan and elsewhere during the three-month period ending October.

    In the U.S. market, Android led the third quarter with 62.8% market share, compared to 33.6% for iOS. The U.S. smartphone market continues to be virtually a two-horse race between Apple and Google, with iOS and Android combining for 96.4% market share in the October quarter. Windows Phone was a distant third place with just 2.7% market share.
    Android continued to have the highest market share among mobile platforms worldwide, experiencing 1.6% year-over-year growth in Europe's big five markets -- United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. iOS adoption grew in China and Japan by 7% and 3.5% respectively compared to the year-ago quarter.


    Kantar Worldpanel data shows the iPhone 6s accounted for 24% of all iPhones sold in the U.S. in the three months ending October, compared to 33% for the iPhone 6 in 2014, and 22% for the iPhone 5s in 2013. Kantar says "overall volumes are pretty much identical to what was sold in 2013, while down 25% from 2014's sales."

    Kantar Worldpanel's latest data is also available in chart format for those that cannot view the embedded map above.

    China knows what's up.

    (And Japan, which actually has a higher iOS market share than Android!)

    The sale of iPhone 6s is clearly not as good as iPhone 6. I am afraid we could see Apple revenue / profit drops in 2016.

    No wonder iPhone is taking of in China with Apple Maps and a safe App Store. Any Android usage there isn't even beneficial to Google as all their services including Google Play and Google Maps are blocked.

    Just wait until they bring out the iPhone 7 with no headphone jack...then sales will REALLY tank.

    It is just rumor for now, until it become offical, it is just a baseless rumor. If Apple does do away headphone jack, it must be headphone jack is acient technology and it needs Apple's reimaginations. After all, consumers do not know what they want util APPLE shows to them, right? And I am sure it will sell well, becuase so many hardcore fan will buy regardles...

    Well, I am just going to enjoy iPhone 6S and my Android phones with CM 13

    Here is an interesting thought.
    Did Apple predict China would keep increasing it's adoption of iOS and that's why Apple made their push into the Chinese market or is it the other way around, with Apples push into China causing the increase in iOS adoption?
