U.S. smartphone sales revenue - additional information

The revenue generated from sales of smartphones in the United States is projected to reach more than 50 billion U.S. dollars in 2015. This is a rapid increase from the revenue of 18 billion U.S. dollars generated in 2010. In 2013, almost 145 million people in the United States owned a smartphone and this figure is set to rise to 220 million by 2018. An estimated 64.3 million of these 145 million smartphone users own an Android device, making it the most popular operating system in the United States. Android’s popularity is projected to rise further with almost a quarter of the entire US population forecast to own an Android device by 2014.

Apple’s iOS is also popular in the United States with the operating system holding a 42 percent share of the market in November 2014. This makes it the second largest operating system based on the number of subscribers behind only Android, which held a share of 52.6 percent. Sales of the iPhone, which runs on iOS, peaked worldwide in the first quarter of 2015 (Apple's financial quarter) with over 74 million units sold. This generated revenue for Apple of around 51 billion U.S. dollars in the first quarter of 2015..
