While Apple has been getting dominated by Android in terms of the sheer number of smartphones sold, iOS users have still managed to capture the lion’s share of worldwide mobile web share company, but it looks like the size of their pie is shrinking.

According to the latest survey from NetApplications, iOS’s worldwide mobile web share has dropped 11% since August of 2012. While iOS is still at the top with 54.9%, Android has risen from 20.9% in August 2012, to 28.1% in August 2013.

As noted by Fortune’s Philip Elmer-Dewitt, Apple likes to use NetApplication’s monthly web usage reports, but considering it’s drop in the survey’s findings, it will be interesting to see if Cook touts the company’s latest numbers at next week’s iPhone event.

    confused.. I use my iPod Touch 5th gen and access the web with Chrome web browser only.. YET when I check the task bar after a day’s use SAFARI is ALWAYS THERE.. even tho I have not used it.. but apparently not…so is this survey corrupt.. in my case Safari is forced on my system and accesses the internet even when I choose not to use it.. but maybe that’s part of the Apple magic
