[ Personally ... I had no idea that Android was (roughly) 85% of smartphones shipped globally, and Apple was not even the remaining (roughly) 15%. Uh, why do we always hear about Apple so much ? ]

It depends on the context. Apple punches well above its market share class in terms of user engagement metrics (app downloads, web surfing, NFC payments), but if you are selling modem chips, you might make as much from a $50 mass market LTE phone as from a $650 iPhone. I'm still not clear how it works from a royalty perspective though.
