iOS marketshare on the rise again

The November marketshare results from Net Applications are out and again we see the rise in mobile browsing. From around 6% twelve months ago we have seen a steady rise to over 10% in November 2012 and I’d expect to see a continued rise over Christmas. After a small dip in October, presumably due to consumers waiting for updates, iOS has started to rise again at the expense of Java ME, Blackberry and Symbian which had a combined market share of 30% twelve months ago and have now fallen to a combined share of less than 10%.

On the desktop Windows (91%) continues to drift downwards with no evidence that Windows 8 has lifted the PC market, Mac OSX continues to rise slowly and now stands at 7.3%, the highest level since Net Applications began recording.
