This IDC study analyzes the installed base of smartphone users in the United States by operating system (OS). It combines IDC's extensive knowledge of smartphones, smartphone users, subscribers, subscriber growth, and challenges and opportunities for different operating systems. The findings in this document are based on information gathered from primary and secondary sources during the past six months.

"The U.S. installed base has been slightly lowered as consumers face challenges around inflation and climbing prices at the premium segment of the market," said Anthony Scarsella, research manager, IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker. "We continue to see refresh rates extending past 40 months as consumers look to hold on to the phone they currently have. Aggressive trade-in deals have helped the market from slipping into a double-digit decline, but a lack of consumer demand will see 2022 shipments fall by 4%."
