This is an interesting phenomenon indeed and the authors did not really suggest any hard core reason. So it is open to speculation/suggestions.
The article suggests that the reason for 75% of the online orders were from iOS devices while 75% of the mobile population is Android is that Android is too hard for the average person. Here is the quote from the article:

I think it comes down to one rather simple but key difference between the two platforms.
iOS is easier to use than Android. Or, flipping that around, Android is too hard for the average user to figure out.
I would say this is quite a stretch.
