Asymco graphiOS shipments overtook Windows PCs for the first time in 2015, according to a graph shared by Asymco.

Shipments of all Apple devices (iPhone, iPad and Mac) combined broke 300m last year, with iOS accounting for all but 10m of that figure. By comparison, shipments of Windows desktop devices dropped to 275m. Android is a notable absence from the graph, for the simple reason that it vastly outperforms the other two.

Elsewhere, Apple announced that 75 per cent of active iOS devices today are running iOS 9. The majority of the remainder (19 per cent) are running iOS 8.
