According to data from an international recruiting firm, senior Android app developers earn more than equally experienced iOS developers.Senior Android application developers tend to earn more money than similarly experienced iOS developers, according to data from worldwide recruiting and staffing firm CyberCoders. At the senior level, Android developers receive an average of $10,000 more a year in salary than their iOS counterparts, according to CyberCoders, which compiled its research from information from 2011 to 2013. However, developers who specialize in Apple's mobile operating system saw close to a 20 percent increase in hiring over Android developers, proving senior Android specialists may make more, but the demand for those who work on iOS continues to climb. "It is a very interesting and dynamic hiring climate for mobile developers," Heidi Golledge, CEO and co-founder of CyberCoders, said in a statement. "Although Android's latest numbers put them at about a 53 percent market share, we have seen a great increase in hiring for iOS developers."
At the junior level, iOS and Android developers make relatively the same amount per year, Matt Miller, chief technology officer at CyberCoders, said.
