Mac OS X is losing Online Market Share, iOS Gains

ComputerWorld is reporting that Mac OS X’s market share has dropped in five of the months in 2010. OS X has fallen back to the 5% share that it was back in February. In contrast, it’s highest point was 5.3% in October 2009. That said, these numbers don’t necessarily reflect the actual sales. Gregg Keizer notes “two weeks ago Apple reported it sold a record 3.5 million Macs in the second quarter.” These numbers might not mean anything in the big picture, but it is certainly something to keep an eye on.

As far as iOS is concerned, it now accounts for 0.7% of total web traffic. From this report, that is a 19% boost from June. It looks like the iPhone 4 is working it’s magic.

What do you think of these numbers? Is it a statistical blip? Should we be worried. Let us know what you think by leaving your thoughts in the comment section of this post.
