Their methodology page mentions the data is an aggregate of 160 million unique visitors per month to their partner sites.

But with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, doesn’t Apple iOS consists of more devices? Well, Android also consists of phones, tablets, and iPod touch knockoff, so that’s not an excuse for the Android drones.

Besides leading the market with user engagement, Apple iOS also earns the highest mobile phone customer satisfaction.
