iOS remains key player in public sector

What: Good Technology Mobility Index Report Q1 2015.

Why: The latest Quarterly Mobility Index Report shows that organizations are continuing to mobilize content and develop apps at an accelerated rate, as total app activations grew 160 percent in the past year.

Industries are sticking to Apple as iOS accounts for 72 percent of all phone activations, leaving Android at 26 percent. However, iOS saw some erosion in its once-dominant tablet adoption with Android continuing a surge and Windows emerging on the scene.

Regulated industries are notably Apple-friendly. The education sector is the most invested, with 83 percent of all devices running on iOS, followed by the public sector at 80 percent and financial services at 76 percent. This is the second consecutive quarter iOS has outpaced Android in regulated industries. In unregulated industries, the high-tech and energy sectors are more Android-friendly, at 47 and 44 percent of devices respectively.

And as industries push to mobilize content, secure browsing remains the most popular app aside from email.
