Yesterday we referred to the United Kingdom as an "iPhone stronghold" in reference to the comparatively weak inroads that Samsung made with the Galaxy S5 in May; today, new research from Chitika only confirms Great Britain's affection for Apple's smartphone. According to a new study, the iPhone was responsible for almost half of the smartphone traffic in the UK in the second quarter of this year.
If Apple's decision to make Mac OS X Mavericks free was rooted in a desire to speed up Mac OS adoption rates, it certainly appears to be working. As reported by MacRumors, research from analytics firm GoSquared shows that Apple's latest Mac operating system already accounts for a little more than 8 percent of the total Mac traffic seen on the Internet.
iPad sales may be down, but that doesn't mean that people aren't using them, as evidenced by advertising firm Chitika's startling revelation that the iPad takes up a whopping 84 percent of all tablet Internet traffic of of June. That actually marks an increase from May's 82 percent, even with the release of Samsung's new Galaxy tablets.
