Nothing is going well for Android, which is seeing more and more users leave its operating system to switch to iOS. Apple seems to be seducing more and more, despite a rather unconvincing new iOS 16 update.
On a third quarter 2022 earnings conference call, which saw Apple post record revenue of $83.0 billion in the June quarter, up 2% from the quarter Earlier, CEO Tim Cook claimed that the iPhones have welcomed huge numbers of Android users in recent months. “Let’s come to the iPhone. We are setting a record for the June quarter, both for revenue and for the number of converters to the iPhone”.
The CEO of the company therefore confirms the data of a report by StockApp at the beginning of the year, which already allowed us to see that Android was losing more and more users. As a reminder, the popularity of Google’s operating system has plummeted in recent years; since it has gone from 77.32% market share to 69.74% in just 4 years.
A record number of Android users are moving to iPhones
While smartphone sales have fallen significantly this year, Samsung and Apple still dominate the podium. The American giant enjoyed a nice growth of 3% in the first quarter of this year; increasing its market share from 15% to 18%. Android users therefore seem to leave Google’s operating system in mass numbers to switch to Apple.
We also saw last year that iPhone users were more loyal than Android users and unwilling to switch smartphones; a trend also seen by Apple itself. “The active iPhone installed base reached a new all-time high across all geographies; thanks to this level of sales performance coupled with unparalleled customer loyalty. In fact, the latest US consumer survey conducted by 451 Research indicates that iPhone customer satisfaction is 98%. We also attracted a record number of switchers for the June quarter; with strong double-digit year-over-year growth,” said Luca Maestri, Chief Financial Officer of Apple.
