If you’re viewing a photo on Flickr, chances are it was taken with an iPhone. The Yahoo! owned photo sharing site released its 2014 stats, and again Apple iDevices, specifically the iPhone, dominated other cameras and smartphones when it came to number of photos uploaded and cameras owned.
Of all the millions of photos posted last year on Flickr, almost ten percent (9.6% to be exact) were shot on an Apple device. Only Canon cameras accounted for the creation of more photos, with 13.4% of all photos uploaded. Apple’s jump to 9.6% edged them slightly ahead of Nikon for the first time, as Nikon came in at 9.3% of all photos uploaded.
However, in terms of individual cameras owned by Flickr users, Apple again was far-and-away the clear winner. The iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 4 accounted for 6.7% of all cameras owned taking the one, two, and three spots respectively. 2015 will likely see the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus on this list, as older iPhone users now eligible for upgrade likely make the jump to the newer device. Moreover, the iPhone was the only smartphone to sit in the top ten of all individual cameras owned, with the remaining seven spots occupied by D-SLR cameras by Canon or Nikon.
For mobile cameras only, the iDomination continues. Flickr stats show that seven out of the top ten mobile cameras in 2014 were Apple devices, and here we see the emergence of the iPhone 6 at number seven with one percent of all mobile cameras owned. The only Android devices to appear on this list were the Samsung Galaxy S3 at number five, the GS5 at number six, and the HTC One at number nine.
