Washington, March 12: Apple is reportedly enjoying its temporary monopoly over 64-bit mobile chip devices as its Android rivals wait for a 64-bit version of the Android OS, ABI Research revealed.
While the first 64-bit version of the Android OS is expected to be released in the second half of the year, it is believed that the new version will enhance the adoption of 64-bit-compliant handsets and tablets.
According to PC World, about 182 million 64-bit mobile processors will ship by the end of this year, though only 20 percent will go into Android devices, with Apple’s A7 chip in the iPhone 5s and iPad tablets retaining a dominant market share.
However, Apple’s market share in 64-bit mobile chips will reportedly take a back seat with the release of many more Android 64-bit mobile devices in the coming years. (ANI)
