Lawyers using iPhone more than ever


Apple’s iOS devices account for 65 percent of all mobile traffic (distant second goes to Android with 20 percent). Among Apple’s popular devices is the magical iPhone. (Did you hear the harp in the background as you read the word iPhone?!)

Clearly, we at LITIG8R TECH recognize the practically unlimited power and potential of iPhones. And in case you missed it, the iPhone turned five this summer. The 5th anniversary infographic below celebrates the impact and dominance of the iPhone as well as proof why we love our iPhone!

Attorney iPhone use jumps

There is no denying that lawyers have embraced smartphones, and this year, iPhone adoption among lawyers grew from 31 percent in 2011 to 44 percent in 2012. According to Jeff Richardson who has written about the 2012 ABA Legal Technology Report, “if an attorney is using a smartphone, there is about a 50-50 chance that he or she is using an iPhone.”

Richardson explains on his award-winning legal tech blog iPhone J.D.:

There are around a million attorneys in the United States, so that means that around 440,000 attorneys in the U.S. use an iPhone.”

With more than 400,000 iPhones in the hands of lawyers all across the country AND the next iPhone in production, even more reason to celebrate!
