SUMMARY

This report forecasts the continual growth of iPhone usage, adoption, yet smartphone differentiation occurs worldwide at a slow pace.

What are the top smartphones, tablets or graphic processing units (GPUs) across the globe? This document answers those questions.

What are the top smartphones? Globally, the Apple iPhone 7 reigns as the top smartphone in the world. The Apple iPhone XR, Apple iPhone XS, and Apple iPhone XS Max experienced the most growth this quarter.

What are the 2019 Q2 smartphone operating systems (OS) trends? Globally, across Android and iOS, iOS 12.2 is the most popular OS version at 16.72% share. Among iOS, over 90% of users are on 11.x or above, indicating the success of the Apple iOS upgrade process.

In 2019, Asia had the highest number of different smartphone profiles at a count of 11,675 in Q1. The differentiation occurring in Asia is caused by a wealth of Android smartphones produced in China. From 2015—2019, Asia has experienced 100% smartphone fragmentation. Similarly, the other continents, Europe, North America, South America, and Africa, have experienced a doubling of device profiles.

Which smartphone profiles provide the greatest performance? Fortnite, the global hit massive multiplayer game, recommends a minimum OS version, RAM and GPU. While 82.27% of iPhones used today meet Fortnite’s requirements, only 19.34% of Android devices meet Fortnite requirements.

Fortnite requirements may ensure a better gaming experience, but optimized images reduce payload. This report provides tips for Web developers on how to optimize image processing for smartphones. Four image optimization strategies: (i) Use an image editing tool, such as Photoshop, (ii) create multiple image versions, (iii) the content delivery network (CDN) performs an analysis to format the image, and (iv) the CDN determines the device and all relevant screen capabilities.

This document is meant to generate interest in mobile device trends, functions, and tools.
