Gartner has released its latest market figures that reveal which operating systems are in front in terms of coverage, and the results are hardly surprising. Indeed, the state of the smartphone market remained the same as it has for the last few years, with Android in front, Apple just behind, and Windows Phone way back in third... the rest barely registering.The details are slightly different though as Apple increased its share to 14.4% (48.1 million smartphones), up from 12.2% over the same period last year. Despite losing some ground, Android is still the utterly dominant platform with a massive 82.2%, which is slightly down on the 83.8% of this time in 2014. Google OS did sell more units though, 271 million compared to the second quarter 2014 figure of 243.48 million. Windows Phone declined to 2.5%, down 0.3% on last year.
