A recent evaluation of which operating systems people across the globe used when browsing online has shown that devices running Apple iOS account for 2.05% of worldwide web browsing.
PC operating systems still rule the day, as Windows controls 89.70% of the market, and Macs take a distant second place with 5.25%. Still, iPads and iPhones have been on a major rise in the last year.
As the above graph shows, iOS has risen from a mere 0.62% market share in March 2010 to its current level. And it's doing even better in the United States, where the number of iOS web users grows to 3.4%. Australia and the U.K. also display significantly above-average percentages of iOS users, with 5.1% and 5.6%, respectively.
The most iOS friendly nation turns out to be Singapore, where 9.98% of all web traffic comes from machines running the iPhone's OS.
Android OS has a considerably smaller share of the world market, holding one fourth of iOS's number at 0.49%. While this is significantly better than the 0.07% displayed by the Android OS last March, it still has a lot of catching up to do when it comes to mobile global dominance.
