NEW YORK (AP) – Research firm IDC says Apple's iPhone continued to lose market share to Android phones in the second quarter.

IDC says the iPhone remains No. 2 behind Android, even without new Apple products driving purchases. Its market share is expected to grow again when a new iPhone comes out, likely this fall.

In the April-June period, Android phones accounted for 79 percent of worldwide shipments, up from 69 percent a year ago. The number of Android phones shipped grew nearly 74 percent to 187 million. IDC says shipments of iPhones also grew, by 20 percent to 31 million. But market share fell to 13 percent from nearly 17 percent.

Microsoft's Windows Phone was third in the second quarter, with a nearly 4 percent share, followed by BlackBerry, with almost 3 percent.
