A Survey Reveals That 54 Percent of Customers That Wanted to Upgrade to a New Smartphone Chose Apple’s iPhone as Their Next Purchase
According to Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz via 9to5Mac, and company shares that in a survey of about 1,000 consumers belonging to the U.S., UK, China, and Germany, 62 percent of them state that they will upgrade their smartphone in the next year, while 72 percent of that survey said that they plan on upgrading to a new phone in the next 18 months.
Apple became the most popular choice amongst consumers, with 54 percent of them planning on choosing an iPhone. Out of that 54 percent, 35 percent said they would pick up the iPhone X, suggesting that they were not concerned about the $999 starting price of the phone.
