Porn loves iOS: Apple comes before Android

It seems that people are viewing more and more pornography from their smartphones and tablets. Pornhub has been collecting some data over the views on its website for the last little while and has uncovered something pretty revealing, when it comes to pornography, Android users are a little more liberating than their iOS counterparts.

First it was the shift from traditional print media to the World Wide Web and now the next shift in pornography viewing is going mobile with more people accessing this type of media on their smartphones and tablets. One of the largest providers on the web, Pornhub, has now given us a much more intriguing insight into how this is starting to shape up.

Smartphone statistics

One of the most surprising figures to come out of the statistics from Pornhub is how close iOS is to Android when it comes to viewing porn on their smartphones. While it may seem like Android users are the most willing to watch porn on their smartphones, it doesn’t take into account the fact that Android has a much larger global market share than iOS. With Android coming in around 80% of the market share and iOS coming in between 12 and 15 percent, you can easily see that iOS users consume a ton more porn on their devices than their Android friends. Basically, for every Android user who visits Pornhub, there are three iOS users waiting in line behind him.

When it comes to the amount of pages being viewed per visit, iOS users still remain on top at an average of 9.78 pages per visit with Android users clocking in 9.06 pages per visit.  However, when looking at the average time spent viewing the page, Android and iOS are almost a near match coming in at 8 minutes and 57 seconds for Android and 8 minutes and 53 seconds for iOS.

Tablets statistics

This is where the gap really widens: the majority of traffic to Pornhub is coming from iOS tablets with Android tablets only coming in around 22% of the entire tablet traffic to the site.  The iPad is king of the tablet market, but Android is catching up fast and continues to outsell Apple at every corner. In fact, at the end of 2013, iPads only accounted for 36 percent of all tablet sales (down from 52 percent the year before) and Android tablets were up to 62 percent of tablets sold (up from 36 percent the year before). And so, while there may be more and more Android tablets on the market, it seems like iPad is the device of choice to watch porn on.

Following the same close statistics that we saw in smartphones, but Android and iOS has nearly identical viewing times coming in at 9 minutes and 57 seconds for Android and 10 minutes and 12 seconds for iOS.  However, on tablets, iOS users seem to are browsing a bit more furiously coming in with an average 9.25 pages per visits and Android dropping down to 8.75 pages per visit, almost a half-page difference between the two.

We will leave it to our readers to draw their own conclusions over what exactly this means, but it seems the shift of viewing pornography is definitely heading to the mobile marketplace. We would love to hear some of our iOS friends to come out the woodwork and maybe comment on their above average representation in these statistics.

    I know this article is about smartphones...but this app is a rated E app, which means people under 18 can view these articles. I know for sure that there would be people under 18 here who click this article and visit the site/s mentioned above...I honestly think you should delete articles like this.

    Iphone is small enough to hold with one hand comfortably, which frees the other hand to do what ever it is people do when they are watching the pornography alone. Just telling what every one is thinking, that's all.

    This is kinda a surprise. Considering Android is MORE customizable. Like I have a NON-Google Play Porn Store. In otherwords, if I were to be with iOS, I wouldn't be able to download OUTSIDE iOS' Apple App Store whereas with Google Play Store, I'm able to download apps such as above OUTSIDE Google Playstore. Beside iOS is far to restrictive for me anyways.
