Apple’s iPad dominates US enterprise and education tablet markets

iPads account for 91 per cent of the enterprise tablet market, rising to 98 per cent in Fortune 500 companies, and 95 per cent of the education tablet market, according to Apple. The figures were delivered as part of the company’s Q2 2014 earnings announcement. In the four years since Apple launched the iPad, over 210 million units have been sold, a figure which Apple CEO Tim Cook pointed out was twice as many as the number of iPhones sold and seven times the number of iPods sold. Of the iPad’s 91 per cent share of the tablet market, Cook was particularly satisfied.
