Market share for Apple’s macOS, iOS both rise slightly in October

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both Apple’s macOS and iOS was up slightly last month.

In October macOS had 9.93% of the desktop/laptop market compared to 9.91% in September. Windows remains dominate with 87.38%.

In October, iOS had 29.17% of the mobile operating market, compared to 29.13% in September. Android remains dominate with 69.71% of the market.

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.
