The latest data from comScore indicates the iPhone’s share of the U.S. smartphone is growing and is now inching ever so close to 40%.

For the period covering the first three months of 2013, comScore’s data shows that the iPhone’s share of the U.S. smartphone market checked in at 39%, representing a mild gain from the period ending December 2012 when the iPhone accounted for 36.3% of the U.S. smartphone market.

Of course, when the metrics turn to overall platform share, Apple takes a backseat to Android which accounted for 52% of the U.S. smartphone market during Q1 2013. Overall though, Apple’s platform share went up by 2.7 percentage points while Google’s Android lost 1.4 percentage points.
