It is public knowledge that Apple dominated the fourth quarter of last year, the all-important Holiday Season. However, the extent of Cupertino's success is still providing stunning statistics, with the latest numbers coming from Good Technology. The company?s Mobility Index Report for the fourth quarter of 2014 shows that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were the runaway smartphone leaders throughout the period.Apple's iOS saw 73% of all new device activations through the three month quarter, a rise of 69%. Android managed just 25% of the market, but the fourth quarter is usually where iOS enjoys a rare lead over its big rival, but Android's share declined from 29% the year before. Windows Phone and Microsoft's tablets made up a paltry 1% of activations. It is worth mentioning that these are not exactly consumer figures as Good Technology takes its data from its own customer base, which is made up of business and government bodies. As such, the figures represent customers that activated five or more handsets. We already know that Apple dominated the consumer space and it seems the company is also the one to beat in the enterprise sector too. It should come as no surprise to see that the iPhone 6 was the most popular smartphone, it (along with the iPhone 6 Plus) accounted for 30% of all Good Technology?s sales. It should also be no shock to learn that Samsung dominated Android and the rest of the chasing pack; the Korean company offered nine of the ten most activated smartphones from the Android platform.
