Apple the most popular platform with students

The long held belief that our students rely upon Windows and Internet Explorer has been destroyed by the latest wireless statistics.  In the first two weeks of the new term here at Plymouth University we collected statistics on the browser type and the results are as follows:

Mac OS 34%
 Android 28%
 iPhone 15%
 Windows 7 8%
 Windows 8 6%

Apple with the Mac and iPhone platform represented 49% of all wireless connections.  Also to take away is the growth of the tablet and mobile platforms – both android and iPhone platforms have greater take up than Windows.
