New tracker tool reveals Apple's iOS dominates mobile traffic

Real-time Mobile Dominance Tracker shows majority of US mobile traffic originates from iOS devices

A new Android vs iOS real-time tracker shows that Apple's mobile operating system is dominating mobile traffic in the US.

Chitika Insights explains that its Mobile Dominance Tracker "performs an analysis of the unique impressions seen originating from mobile devices within the Chitika Ad Network". The Chitika Ad Network places billions of ads across 200,000 websites.

This data is then displayed in two visual graphs. Chitika's rolling 24 hour pie chart shows that on 24 April, over 69 per cent of the mobile traffic recorded originated from an iOS device with 26.6 per cent coming from Android devices and under five per cent from other mobile operating systems.

Chitika's second graph shows the US mobile traffic share by hour, which, when we checked at midday on 24 April, showed that over 73 per cent of the total mobile traffic recorded by Chitika at 3am originated from iOS devices, with the iPad contributing to this traffic the most.

Apple is expected to report a successful quarter for the iPad in its earnings call later today.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
