01_​Android_​vs_​iOS

Workflow

Background: Apple is the sole supplier of iOS phones, while Android phones aremanufactured and sold by many suppliers. iPhones are more expensive and Appleis the most profitable supplier of phones. Android suppliers are less profitable butAndroid has a larger overall market share, with price points ranging from verycheap up to almost as expensive as the iPhones.This workflow shows how all these results are modeled with Market Simulation. Case Study (CS-151) - Android vs iOSShows how a simple Market Simulation can accurately model thefundamentals of the competitive battle between Android and iOS phones. We assume that the valueprovided by a phone's software(Android or iOS) is roughly thesame as the value provided bythe phone's brand of hardware. Customers have more difficultydistinguishing Android brandedhardware than "Apple" brandedphones. Often Android phones"all look the same". Phones = Software + HardwareThe iPhone cost Apple more tomanufacturer as the Androidsoftware is free. Virtual Customers purchase thephone that give them thegreatest "Consumer Surplus".That is, the phone's WTP valueminus the phone's Price. Results are like the real-world:1.
