Apple users vs Android users, it’s a battle that has been going on for a long time and one I wish would just end. But given that human nature seems to thrive on conflict and competition here we are with another survey showing differences in each OS’s user base.
A new survey conducted by PCMag shows that Apple users dominate the U.S. landscape with the majority of states going to Apple users. Before we move on, we should understand that PCMag only surveyed 2,033 U.S. consumers for this survey. That is a very small section of a country that is home to over 300 million people.
PCMag does cite the most recent comScore rankings showing Android making up 54.2% of U.S. market share vs Apple’s 44.8% and that’s since December 2018. But the survey PCMag conducted suggests that only 14 states were predominately Android users with 36 states going to Apple users.
Overall, 54 percent of respondents chose iOS as their smartphone OS of choice, 42 percent chose Android, 2 percent chose Other, and 2 percent chose None.PCMag
In other metrics, PCMag found that 57% of Apple users were female versus 43% male. They also found that 63% of iOS users used Windows PC’s and only 34% used Macs. Android users claimed a huge 90% using Windows PC’s and 10% using Macs.
PCMag has a whole lot more metrics and numbers in their article, so be sure to check that out at the link below. There’s no doubt that this survey could be disputed, considering the small number of people surveyed compared to the population of the U.S. If anything, the survey is just added fuel to the dumpster fire that is the debate of Android vs iOS.
