iOS Users Tend to Use Wifi More Than Android Users

 iphone vs android wifi use

A recent ComScore survey shows that users of Apple’s iPhone are much more likely than Android users to connect to wifi networks.

Here’s a portion of the report:

“A U.S. analysis of Wi-Fi and mobile Internet usage across unique smartphones on the iOS and Android platforms reveals that 71 percent of all unique iPhones used both mobile and Wi-Fi networks to connect to the Internet, while only 32 percent of unique Android mobile phones used both types of connections. A further analysis of this pattern of behavior in the U.K. shows consistent results, as 87 percent of unique iPhones used both mobile and Wi-Fi networks for web access compared to a lower 57 percent of Android phones.”

According to the results, this seems to be true in both the US and the UK.
