For the first time since 2012, iOS market share in the USA has beaten the market share of Google’s Android, Kantar Worldpanel ComTech reporters write.

According to what Apple supply chain sources say, in the upcoming March quarter, the company from Cupertino may sell as many as 50 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units. If these predictions come true, Apple will set a new record as it has never ever managed to sell 50 million iPhone units outside the holiday season. In fact, in the March quarter of 2014, Apple sold 43.7 million iPhones, which is less that the suppliers predict for 2015.
According to what reliable insiders write, the average selling price of the iPhone grew to enormous $687 last quarter. Well, that is not strange, especially if to keep in mind that Apple has always been making the most luxurious and the most expensive handsets in the world. What is interesting and a bit shocking is the fact that the average price of the Android smartphone is $254. As it turns out, Apple’s smartphones are 2.7 times more expensive than those with Android OS on board.
