July 24, 2018: Fifty-eight percent of American adults often get their news on a smartphone or other mobile device. That’s a dramatic increase from 21 percent just five years ago.[1]

Not surprisingly, there is a significant generation gap on mobile use. Among adults under 30, 71 percent often get their news on a mobile device. That falls to 37 percent for senior citizens over 65.
