iPhone named the most popular smartphone among American teens (again)

Apple’s iPhone remains the most popular smartphone among American teenagers. This is evidenced by the results of a survey conducted by the investment bank Piper Sandler, writes AppleInsider.

The study involved 9,193 teenagers aged 15.7 across the United States. It turned out that 87% of the respondents have an iPhone, and 88% want it as their next mobile device.

Piper Sandler’s data also shows that 31% of teens own VR devices. However, only 10% of respondents actually use them. Also, 34% of respondents said they have an Apple Watch, and 42% use the Apple Pay payment application.

In the summer, a CIRP survey showed why users are switching from Android to iPhone. 53% of owners abandoned Android due to the unsatisfactory experience of using the previous device.

Another 26% were looking for a better camera, more accessories, or a more intuitive interface. However, 15% of respondents believe that the cost of a new iPhone was “less than they expected or than a similar Android smartphone.”
