Pornhub says it had more traffic from Android than iOS devices in 2018
At the end of every year, Pornhub presents its year in review. Sticking to the data related to mobile devices, we find that over 80% of global visitors to the website came from mobile devices this year. Smartphones accounted for 71.6% of traffic, while 8.7% of visitors viewed the site from a tablet. That is an 8% gain in smartphone viewers for the year, and an 8% decline in tablet users. Desktop visits declined 18%.

When it comes to Pornhub, it appears that Android users have a greater desire to visit the site than those with an iOS device. Android powered gadgets made up 54.4% of worldwide visitors this year, compared to the 44.4% that used an iPhone or iPad. There was a 2% gain in Android wielding visitors, and a 2% decline in those visiting Pornhub from an iOS flavored device. But since Android users are more apt to use different mobile browsers, Chrome barely edged out Safari as the most used mobile browser on the site by 41.1% to 40.1%. For Chrome. that was a 1% gain on the year compared to the 2% decline in Safari users.

Some events caused traffic on Pornhub to rise, while other events caused huge drops in the number of visitors. Interestingly enough, Apple's Gather Round event held on September 12th, during which the 2018 iPhone models were introduced, resulted in an 11% global decline in Pornhub viewers using an iOS device.

Check out some graphs produced by Pornhub in the slideshow below.

Anyone who says they haven't is lying. Also, of course Apples event caused a drop in iOS numbers, iFans were wankin it to something that really gets them hard.

I was thinking Android would contribute way more. I mean, isn't Android market share way larger? This is impressive for iOS users.

The United States and other developed countries (UK, Japan) are way ahead when it come to PornHub traffic, and there are markets where iPhone is doing quite well: close to 45% share. This could explain the close numbers between Android and iPhone here.

Yes. Because we can download the movies from the bage on Android. In iOS you cant download files through the browser. Because only the most advanced mobile OS in the world would prevent you from being able to download files. Only the worse insecure computers allow you to download files through the browser. Such a bad thing.

No! All pensioners own an android phone because they will never pay that much money for an iPhone, they just get a cheap android. My parents have those cheap Samsung A5 ,probably they watch porn as well

Many people here think that people watching porn are perverts. NO, that is NOT true. But those who shame their own parents to save the face of their good for nothing shiny little iToy are the REAL PERVERTS...

Which simply suggests that a larger share of iOS users jack off more.

People with 50$ phone and 10$/month plan can't load videos. As simple as that

Which simply suggests most iphone users are perverts.

And you think android users aren't perverts? Especially with those phones that allows you to see in dark places like the sony XZ2 premium?

This would imply that we got more wankers on android. But when you consider the difference in market share between both platforms you begin to realise that ios actually have a higher percentage of wankers.

Pornhub has an Android app, so access is more convenient. So they're getting traffic through the website, as well as through the mobile app. iOS only has access through the web browser.
