It should be pointed out that although the share of iOS has increased by 6.09%, Android phones are much higher than iPhones in the number of smartphones.

Also, percentage shares do not take into account whether a market has grown over the past five years. Therefore, the above data cannot infer whether Apple is attracting more new users and whether mature markets are more inclined to iOS.
