Topping the list in June was Android with its 56.2% of the U.K.smartphone market. That is down a full percentage point from the 57.2% that Google's open source OS had earned last year, and down from the 56.6% that Android achieved in May 2013. Meanwhile, iOS has seen its momentum pick up in the U.K. In June 2012, iOS had 25.6% of the region's market, rising to 29.9% in May and 30.5% in June 2013.
Kantar's analysis says that the device responsible for Apple's success in the region is the three-year old Apple iPhone 4, which has been picking up sales as an entry-level iPhone model as we mentioned on Sunday. This model could be replaced by a low-cost Apple handset that could be called the iPhone 5C if an earlier leak of retail packaging was legitimate.
