According to the latest statistics released by Adobe, online shopping presence for Black Friday and Cyber Monday -- the busiest shopping period of a year -- was notably dominated by tech giant Apple’s popular iOS devices --- the iPhone and the iPad.

Revealing that Apple’s iOS devices accounted for the biggest chunk of mobile devices tracked through online retailers, Adobe said in its recent report that approximately 75 percent of all online sales on mobile devices on Black Friday were attributable to Apple’s mobile devices.

Adobe further said in its report that, for the Black Friday shopping ‘holiday’ this year, customers used mobile devices for making nearly $2.74 billion in purchases. Adobe also disclosed that Black Friday purchases from Apple’s iOS devices surpassed those made from Android-powered mobile devices by a nearly three-to-one margin.

Meanwhile, so far as the statistics for Cyber Monday online sales are concerned, Adobe has revealed that mobile devices were used by customers for almost 32 percent of all online Cyber Monday purchases, amounting to a total of nearly $156 million in purchases.

Since Cyber Monday, in accordance with its online nature, is more inclined towards mobile devices, Adobe said that around 53 percent of all visits made by customers to shopping websites on Cyber Monday morning came from mobile devices.
