ComScore has revealed its latest data showing the state of the mobile platform industry in the United States, and the results show that Apple is continuing to make ground on Android in its home country. However, while Apple's business model is thriving in most markets, the US is one of the few regions where its iOS is catching Android. Not that it particularly matters at the moment because both platforms are doing very well based on their respective ideals and are dominating the global market.

Back to the United States, where Apple's iOS accounted for 43.5% of all subscribed in the US; there were 189.7 million handsets registered in the country. Android accounted 52.1% of the market, keeping it on top despite Apple gaining ground. Cupertino and iOS grew 1.8% through the second quarter of 2015, while Android slipped 0.7% through the same period.

However, combined the two rival platforms are utterly dominant and account for a massive 95.6% slice of the overall market in the US, a figure that closely mirrors global figures.
