With each passing year, the iPhone has always gain more traction; and so, the latest model rips all previous records and attracting Android users with a rate never before recorded. And this is not even the only good news for Apple.
Google certainly has the most popular operating system in the world, but Apple is not watching. The bleeding of users towards Apple in the last three months of this year amounted to 26% of new activations. In other words, every 100 iPhone 6s and 6s Plus sold, 26 are on average a former Android user. So certify to the latest research by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners signed market (CIRP).
Probable that the phenomenon has something to do with the larger display, but also other reasons must exist, otherwise how to explain the rate of migration more than doubled compared to what was recorded with the iPhone 6?
“The launch of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus has attracted a much higher percentage of Android users than a year ago,” said Mike Levin, co-founder of CIRP. “This tells us a little bit about the launch much later iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus, an event that has motivated many more updates than in past years. The proportion between the original iOS and those that come to the Android platform resembles more closely the long-term trend of switching from Android to iOS. ”
A trend that should continue in the coming months, perhaps years, which also means that the market share of Android is destined to crumble a little ‘.
Incidentally, while last year won the iPhone 6 6s hands down, this time the balance has shifted to the 5.5-inch phablet indeed, iPhone Plus 6s like especially to those coming from Android. Apple, in fact, there has been right.
