Monthly share of mobile operating systems Australia 2017-2019

Since April 2017, the two smartphone operating systems with the largest market share in Australia were Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. In April 2019, iOS held a 56.33 percent share of the mobile operating system market in Australia.

Smart phone hardware and users

It’s hardly surprising then, that Apple also had a share of over half of the device market in April 2019. By comparison Samsung, the leading Android device manufacturer, had a share of just over 20 percent. By comparison, other companies all had market shares of around one percent.

In 2018, 90 percent of Australians aged 12 and over owned a smartphone, with 96 percent aged between 25 and 54 owning a device.
