You may recall from previous reports that the iPad has dominated the enterprise market with 80%–90% of activations every quarter. Well, something changed in the second quarter of 2015: The iPad’s share drastically dropped from 81% of activations to 64%, while Android grew by 15%, to 25%. Windows has also recorded a 7% jump during the past quarter, now accounting for 11% of all activations.

iOS however, maintains a strong grip on regulated industries, while Android dominates the tech sector. Apple’s mobile operating system accounted for 79% in the public sector, 76% in education, 70% in healthcare, 65% in insurance, and 63% in financial services.
