Mosseri did not elaborate on why he found Android to be superior

However, his mention of it being 'now better' suggests he might have previously favoured iOS.

Both iOS and Android have achieved significant success since the debut of the first iPhone in 2007 and Android phones in 2008. Interestingly, Instagram was an iOS-exclusive app when it was first launched in 2010.

Based on information from Counterpoint Research, iPhones are currently more popular than Android devices among Americans

Apple held a dominant 52% share of the US smartphone market, with Samsung following as the second-largest player with a 27% share. The rest of the market share was distributed among various other brands like Google and Lenovo, all of which use Android.

However, Statistica estimates that Android remains the dominant global mobile operating system, widely used by most phone manufacturers globally

It holds a substantial market share of 70.8%. On the other hand, Apple's iOS secures the second position with a market share of 28.4%. These estimates encompass not only smartphones but also other devices like tablets that run mobile operating systems.
