The latest smartphone operating system data from Kantar Worldpanel Comtech shows a mixed picture for Android, which while losing ground to iOS in the U.S. has made significant gains across the five main European markets in the three months ending in September.

“Healthy early sales of iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max models in the States are good news for Apple,” says Dominic Sunnebo, global director for Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. “Combined with the continued strong momentum we’re seeing among its iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, these sales have contributed to a 5.0 percentage point increase in OS share for Apple in the US – the biggest gain seen worldwide this quarter.”
