If you’re in the U.S. and you activated a phone in the last quarter of 2014, chances are good that it was an iPhone . Based on the latest analysis from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), Apple’s phones accounted for 50% of all phone activations in Q4 2014, an astounding 28% jump over the previous quarter.

“The strength of the September 2014 launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus fueled Apple’s dominance in US mobile phone sales this quarter,” said Josh Lowitz, partner and co-founder of CIRP.
“Apple had virtually double the sales of Samsung, and five times that of LG. No other brand accounted for as much as 5% of US sales. The Amazon Fire and Blackberry smartphones registered slight share, which we attribute to random sample fluctuation as much as actual sales.”
