After refreshing its iPad lineup in the fall last year, rather than summer, Apple set itself up to go through a June quarter without a new iPad launch for the first time since it was introduced in 2010. Analysts are expecting Apple to announce that year-over-year iPad sales last quarter were down, but one thing that’s still up is iPad usage.
According to the latest stats from the Chitika ad network, iPads now account for 84.3% of all web traffic from tablets in June. That’s just a slight bump up from the 82.4% Apple hit in May, but it’s the iPad’s highest share of tablet web use this year.
While the iPad’s share rose 1.9%, the Samsung Galaxy tablets dropped down to 4.2% while the Amazon Kindle Fire also saw its usage shrink down to 5.7% of tablet web traffic.
Apple’s brass loves to boast that consumers don’t seek to buy a “tablet” but rather want an iPad because it’s the most used tablet, and Chitika’s numbers seem to back them up. For a full run down on how crappy every other tablet-maker is doing, you can read the full report here.
