In this hyperconnected era, about 3.2 billion people have access to the Internet. That’s 55% of the world’s population. Since the introduction of the iPhone back in 2007, the way people accessed the Internet has changed. Phones are now as powerful as computers, and they’re way more portable. Mobile Internet use has crept up slowly, surpassing desktop usage in 2016. Today, more users are now accessing the Internet from their mobile devices, and according to Google, there are more search queries happening on mobile. There’s little doubt that smartphones are becoming the primary method of accessing the Internet.
