Across Europe, Android remains the top OS with 70.7% share, while Apple holds second position at 19.2%.  Windows, at third, accounts for 8.1% of smartphone sales.

Apple regained ground in the first quarter of 2014, primarily due to the strong performance of the iPhone 5S, growing its sales share in Europe, Japan and Australia.
