iOS Suffers 6% Drop In Enterprise Activations During Q2 2015 [Android Gains]

Apple just took a big hit in the mobile enterprise space with iOS device activations dropping 6% during the second quarter of 2015.

While Apple continues to hold a massive lead over its rivals, Google initiatives such as Android for Work and increased security measures do seem to be paying off.

During Q2 2015, Android device activations in the mobile enterprise space grew to 32%, while iOS device activations dropped to 64%. Windows stayed flat at 4%.

The findings come from Good Technology’s Mobility Index Report, which does not report BlackBerry activations since they use BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

However, BlackBerry has been relegated to the sidelines even in the enterprise market which was once its stronghold, so the figures reported should give a pretty good picture of the mobile enterprise market.

Google Technology reports that Windows Phone activations stood at just 1% while the rest of the 3% was made up by tablets running Windows Desktop software. It is to be seen if the launch of Windows 10 will make a significant impact on these numbers.

iOS’s biggest losses were in the tablet market. Apple iPad activations have fallen from 81% to 64% while Android grew from 15% to 25% and even Windows grew from 4% to 11%.
