A survey of 12,000 office workers in South Africa by Inspiration Office has detailed which operating systems local workers prefer.

The survey focussed on the “bring your own device” trend, but touched on other aspects of office workers’ IT experiences.

The results showed that 52% “needed” a smartphone at work, while 38% preferred a tablet.

When it comes to a desktop computer 80% prefer Windows and 11% prefer an Mac Mini, iMac or a Mac Pro.

When is comes to Laptops 79% prefer Windows, while 15% prefer a Macbook, Macbook Air or Macbook Pro.

When it comes to smartphones 50% prefer Andorid while 41% prefer iOS. While Android has a larger market share than iOS there are many more Android devices compared iOS only running on the iPhone. We could estimate that iPhone has 41% market share in the work place.

The iPad is a clear winner in the tablet market with 49% and Android only having 37%.
