Users prefer Apple more than Samsung when switching from one smartphone to another, new data revealed. The iPhone 13 also emerged as the top-selling phones.
In what will come as a major shot in the arm for Apple ahead of the upcoming iPhone 14 launch, it has been revealed that iPhones are quite the preferred gadget for switchers between brands. With iPhone 14 being hyped up as a game-changer, this kind of data will certainly be welcome- for Apple. How does this pa out? So, while switching from one smartphone to another, users have many brands in the market to choose from. Now, a recent report indicated that Apple is the leading brand for buyers when it comes to switching between two smartphone brands – Samsung and Apple. According to new data from US carrier channels, Apple surpassed Samsung by a wide margin, a Gizmochina report reveals. The data suggested that 73 percent of the users choose the iPhone maker while switching from one smartphone brand to another, while only 16 percent go to the South Korean brand Samsung.
iPhone 13 is still at the TOP
Last year, Apple launched its iPhone 13 series including four smartphones – iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 mini. Among these, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are still selling better than the previous generations of Apple’s smartphones, the report suggested. Sadly, the sales numbers for these iPhones are unknown. Still, the data suggested that iPhone 13 is shining across all the carrier channels as the top model with a 25 percent share in May 2022. This is followed by the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro with 16 percent and 13 percent respectively. Also read: Think iPhone 13 is expensive? Leaked iPhone 14 price too? Wait till you read this
It seems like Apple’s compact smartphones are not doing great in sales, as the iPhone 13 mini clocked only a 2 percent share and the latest iPhone SE 3 sales were weak too, the carrier representatives added. Other iPhones than these accounted for 4 percent in sales.
This makes sense why Apple may ditch the iPhone 14 mini in the upcoming flagship iPhone 14 series launch later this year. Several leaks suggest that Apple will replace the mini avatar of the iPhone with a new iPhone 14 Max.
