IPHONE 5 HELPED APPLE CAPTURE MAJORITY OF U.S. SMARTPHONE MARKET FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER

BGR:

Of those who purchased an iPhone in the timeframe covered in Kantar’s report, 27% came from another smartphone OS while 34% upgraded from an older Apple model and 40% of buyers were new to smartphones entirely. In fact, first-time buyers helped iOS become the top-selling operating system on Verizon’s network, beating out Android for the first time ever.

Android’s definition of winning.
