Exclusive Premium Statistic

US iPhones users as share of smartphone users 2014-2016 This statistic shows the percentage of U.S. smartphone users that use an iPhone from 2014 to 2016. In 2015, 43.5 percent of smartphone users in the United States used an iPhone, this number was expected tpo increase to some 43.5 percent in 2016.
Percentage of the U.S. population that owns an iPhone - additional information

In 2017, forecasters predict that around 223 million people in the U.S. will be using a smartphone, which accounts for around 83.8 percent of all mobile users . Of these 223 million smartphone users, over 90 million will own an iPhone. Apple’s iOS (operating system) is placed second in the market, behind only the Android Operating System, which will have roughly 107.7 million American users in 2016.

However, the iPhone is the top-selling individual phone of any kind in the U.S., with sales of the brand reaching 1 billion in 2016 since the first generation iPhone was released in June 2007. The first iPhone was notably different from other smartphones at the time because the user interface is built around the device’s multi-touch screen including a virtual keyboard, rather than the need for a stylus, keypad, or separate keyboard.

Additional functions on the smartphone can be enabled by downloading application programs, or apps, from the phone’s application distribution platform, which in the case of the iPhone is the App Store. There are many different types of app that range in category from gaming and entertainment to banking and news updates. As of January 2017, the App Store offered more than two million apps developed by Apple or third parties and is thus the world’s second largest application marketplace, in first place being Android’s Google Play store. The Apple App Store looks to remain one of the biggest app platforms in the world with Apple announcing in September 2016 that a total of 140 billion apps had been downloaded from its store.
