Apple’s share also went up by 1.4%, totaling their market share to 11.2%, making it fourth place. As the two companies increase numbers in the market share, LG Electronics, Blackberry, and Motorola shares decreased during the three-month period.

Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS platforms are at the top two for the smartphone market. Google went up 3.1%, controlling 46.9% of the market. Apple’s share increased 1.4%, taking over 28.7% of the market.
