macOS and iOS market share both rise in February

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS both increased last month. 

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 8.41% of the global market share in February, up from from 8.21% percent in December (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 88.79%.

iOS had 29.59% in January, up from 29.52% in December. This compares to 68.71% for Android.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that NetMarketShare’s numbers don’t equate to sales.
