Apple, following 4 years of exclusivity with AT&T, launched the Verizon iPhone 4 in February.
Daniel Ruby of Localytics says the figure comes from analyzing which version of the iPhone downloaded the 1500 mobile applications the firm uses its software to monitor. A few of the more notable apps the firm monitors are for clients Skype, News Corp. and Turner, each with heavy traffic.
Interestingly, in its first week of availability the number jumped to 20 percent share. That number had hit 25 percent by April and 29 percent last month.
The company believes that with a level playing field (the rumored September iPhone 5 launch), Verizon will have a number closer to 40 percent share right from the get-go.
