The iPhone and the iPad are especially popular in their homeland, the United States. Now, according to a new report from analytics firm Chitika, Appleâ€™s iPhone gained mobile web traffic share in North America during the holidays, seeing a 1.8 percent jump from the period between December 20 and December 29. The iPhone has a 54.3 percent share of total mobile web traffic while the iPad has remained the most popular tablet with 76.1 percent of all mobile web traffic in North America.
In late 2012, Chitika published a similar study, noting that iOS had an overall usage share of 67 percent, compared to Androidâ€™s 33 percent share. We recently shared with you a report from IBM which was showing the majority of online shopping from mobile devices during the Christmas holiday coming from iOS users rather than Android users.
