The Price Gap Between iOS and Android Is Widening

It's hardly a surprise that the average selling price of Apple's iPhones is higher than that of Android smartphones. What is surprising though, is the fact that the price gap between iOS and Android devices is actually widening. In 2013 the price gap was $374, up from just $261 in 2010. Despite Apple's introduction of the (only slightly) cheaper iPhone 5C, the average iPhone selling price was more than twice as high as the average price of an Android smartphone. That's why, despite a gradual decline in market share, Apple still takes the lion's share of profits in the smartphone industry.
