Analysts have suggested that Apple’s iPhone sales will continue to decline until the next generation iPhone is launched in the fall, but in June Apple’s smartphone operating system shares hit an all-time high.
Market research and analytics firm, Net Applications, released its smartphone OS share data on Sunday for June of 2012. The report showed that Apple hit an unexpected all-time high last month, with a big lead on other smartphone providers.
According to Net Applications, Apple grew to 65.27 percent in June after falling slightly in May to 62.65 percent. Google’s Android platform was up somewhat in June at 19.73 percent from 16.9 percent in May while Research In Motion’s Blackberry platform dropped below 2 percent for the first time to 1.87 percent. Clearly RIM’s Blackberry is still losing in the battle between smartphone providers.
Any worry that Apple’s smartphone sales would decline until the new generation iPhone’s release in the fall can be put to rest as Apple continues to exceed expectations.Follow @macgasm
