With 51.2% of sales being iPhone's, they still enjoy just over half the US smartphone market share, for now. This is a drop from the previous 12-week total which saw the Cupertino-based company enjoying 53.3% of the market. The percentage is reportedly part of a "moving average" of the previous 12 weeks, but the reports are actually issued monthly.

 

In November, Apple enjoyed an all-time high share against Android-based smartphones, which saw them take 53.3% for the 12-week period ending in November just as the iPhone 5 began rolling out in better numbers. In the November quarter, the Android market share in the US took a huge dive, dropping to just 41.9% - a huge year-over-year drop of 11%. In December, however, Android market share numbers jumped back up in the US to take 44.2%.
