Apple iOS devices continue to dominate the enterprise mobility sector with 72 percent of the market, although Android devices are catching up, according to enterprise mobility firm Good Technology.
The Mobility Index Report Q1 2015 (PDF) showed that Apple's iPhone 6 was the most popular smartphone in enterprises in the first quarter of 2015, taking up 26 percent of all device activations during the period.
Samsung's Galaxy S5 was the second most popular mobile device. Devices from both companies make up 28 out of the top 30 used by enterprises.
Apple may dominate the market, but its share dipped by one percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2014.
Android's share rose by one percent to 26 percent, finding strong adoption in the high-tech and energy industries where it saw increases in device activation of 47 percent and 44 percent respectively.
Apple's iOS has a stranglehold on more regulated industries, holding 80 percent of mobile device activations in the public sector, 83 percent in education and 76 percent in financial services.
Mobile devices running Windows scraped their way into the report for the first time, taking one percent of mobile device activations in the quarter.
Devices running Windows Pro, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, helped Windows to grab four percent of the enterprise tablet market.
However, Apple is the dominant player when it comes to tablet use in the enterprise with 81 percent of the market, although this was 92 percent a year earlier.
The loss of market share comes not only from new adoption of Windows tablets, but from an increase in activations of Android tablets which rose by one percent to 15 percent of the market.
The report also indicated that the use of mobile apps in the enterprise increased by 28 percent over the previous quarter and is up 48 percent over the same quarter last year.
