iPhone 6s Brought In A Record Number Of Android Switchers
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are evolutionary upgrades that aim to improve upon last year’s releases – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. For a lot of users, the ‘s’ upgrade is the way to go since it brings a more refined experience for the table. Keeping that in mind, it seems as though the iPhone 6s was way too refined to say the least, as it managed to rake in a huge number of Android switchers, breaking all records set in the year before it.
The ‘s’ iPhone Upgrade Is Popular Among Android Switchers
According to a newly released report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners – in the first month of iPhone 6s going on sale, 26% buyers came from the Android side of the fence. In other plain words, 26% users switched over from Android to the iPhone.
To put things into perspective, 12% of iPhone 6 buyers switched from Android during the same time period last year. Meanwhile, the iPhone 5s accounted for 23% of switchers. If you crunch the numbers, it’s a clear sign that users are more inclined towards the ‘s’ upgrade of Cupertino’s smartphone.
Another interesting nugget revealed by the data goes on to suggest that the iPhone 6s Plus is far more popular this year than how much the iPhone 6 Plus was last year. When crunched into numbers, the iPhone 6s Plus accounted for 37% of iPhone sales this year, whereas the iPhone 6 Plus managed to top 25% of total iPhone sales in 2014.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bring with it a ton of great changes under the hood. In fact, if you pick up both the handsets, you’ll come to realize that apart from the design compared to last year’s release, everything is brand new, including the materials used in the construction of the handset. And to top things off, Apple finally heard the cries of countless users out there, and decided to bump up the RAM count from 1 to 2, giving the iPhone 6s a massive bump in performance and speed.
While the iPhone 6s brings with it a handful of incentives for users to upgrade straight away, but at the same time several iPhone 6 users believe that a slight bump in performance is not worthy of ditching their previous-gen smartphone for a new one. They do have a point, but at the same time, if you give it a deep thought, Apple’s ‘tick tock’ release cycle caters to all types of users that live in the market.
Smart move to say the least.
