iPhone accounts for 10% of US WiFi use

According to Admob Apple’s iPhone accounted for 10% of all WiFi use in the US, this compared to 10-20% for all other WiFi enabled handsets.

WiFi use is expected to grow as more phones have both cellular and WiFi radio and more people use WiFi for data access. It’s also cheaper for the MNOs for users to utilise WiFi for Internet access rather than them having to provide high bandwidth 3G services.
