Dediu states:

[box style=’info’]”So we can suggest that at 90% penetration (approximately saturation) the iPhone will have 68% market share of users in the US.”[/box]

Dediu bases this conclusion on a statistical analysis that suggests that of the over age 13 United States population in 2017 of 180 million people, a 68% will own an iPhone based upon current trend line analysis.

Certainly, a lot can happen in the next four years, including all kinds of smartphone market disruption (smartphone makers going out of business, etc.)
