Report: Apple's iOS is responsible for 77% of November's online sales in the U.S.
posted by Alan F. / Jan 05, 2016, 3:49 PM
A similar breakdown was spotted on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Friday following Thanksgiving saw 78% of online orders placed over an iPhone or iPad, while Android phones and tablets were the source for 22% of online orders made on that day. The following Monday, Cyber Monday, the numbers were 76% and 24% for iOS and Android, respectively.
Stateside consumers continue to favor using a desktop machine to do their online shopping. During November, 70% of online purchases were made on a PC. 11% used a tablet, and 20% of online orders were placed over a phone. On Black Friday, tablets garnered 12% of the purchases made by online shoppers compared to 24% that used a phone. For Cyber Monday, tablets were responsible for 9% of online orders compared to the 18% that used a phone to make their web-based purchases.
In the U.S., online holiday orders placed over smartphones increased as much as 7 percentage points year-over-year. That is due to the larger sized screens available on most handsets, making it easier for consumers to shop over the internet.

Well 77% of people who bought phones online during November are apparently idiots. Don't let your heads get too deep up Apple's rear end....we might be able to save you from your terrible decision.

The article is about number of e-commerce purchases made on an OS, not about how may phones were bought. Maybe you should have read the article, your insult would have made more sense.

It seems like you come to the site just be a bother, and try to irritate people. That's a weak ass existence, cause you're no doubt that way in general life. Respond with a stupid comment, like I know you will, but you're just a weak ass little troll...who offers no credence to this site. PA will ban you soon...

I hope this helps Apple at least in their stock price after the latest Nikkei's report about their iPhone production number. I dont buy their phones but it seems like every companies in the US are trying really hard to help Apple out with their miserable iphone sales.

Apple's market-cap is $572 billion. You have three minutes to correct your comment at the time of this writing. Samsung has $55 billion in cash, their market cap is around $200 bn (as you said). http://www.vcpost.com/articles

Gotta admit this article is written a bit deceptively. And the title doesn't help. It starts off sounding like iOS was responsible for 77% of all online purchases in November in the US, but the correct wording is mobile online purchases. In later paragraphs, the author goes on to explain that 70% of all online purchases were done with a PC, 11% Tablets, and 20% Phones. I'm assuming that 1% over 100% is due to confusion over what exactly is a PC, Tablet, or Phone and that some things got double counted. Anyway, the closer number would be 23.9% of online purchases were done on iOS vs 7.1% on Android. With 70% of online purchases done on PCs, one might conclude that most Americans don't care much for shopping for things on crappy little screens. Something that would have made this article more interesting is if the author had discussed iPhone and iPad ownership proportions for the US compared to the proportion of mobile online purchases made. Oh well...
