More and more users are deciding to abandon their Android devices and go to iphone. Or, at least, this is what a recent report published by the company specialized in market analysis CIRP suggests, which shows that theto the number of Android users the purchase of an iPhone has reached its highest peak in the last 5 years.
Furthermore, they took the opportunity to explain what is the main reason why users decide to abandon their devices Android in favor of Apple phones. And despite what we might think, iMessage has nothing to do with it.
When consulting users who have decided to abandon their Android mobile phone to buy an iPhone, about 53% of the people consulted ensured that have had problems with their previous device, either related to UX due to performance degradation or because they needed some sort of fix.
The second most frequent reason was instead related to the greater variety of accessories available on the iPhone, the better photographic experience (somewhat questionable) or the fact of having a more intuitive user interface.
Of course, iMessage also affects the number of Android users switching to iPhone. According to the report, around 6% of people surveyed said they made the switch because they wanted to be able to chat with their contacts without the limitations of having an Android device.
Apple is fully aware of these limitations, but has no plans to do anything to prevent them.
The report also reveals other interesting data: around 15% of respondents believe they spent less on the new iPhone than they would have paid for an Android smartphone with similar features.
Moreover, 83% of people who buy an iPhone already come from using another Apple mobile.
Meanwhile, Meta before Apple
Meta unveiled its Quest line of virtual reality headsets on Thursday, just days before an expected announcement from Apple that would turn the headset market upside down.
Apple is expected to provide a preview of the virtual reality or augmented reality (AR) helmet next Monday. It has been rumored for some timeas part of an annual Global Developers Conference, which invites developers and software companies to start delivering content.
“According to all reports, Apple was set to release a product that looked more like a pair of designer glasses than a head-worn gaming device, but it’s launching something much bulkier,” said lead Insider Intelligence analyst Yory Wurmser. .
The idea is to put the device in the hands of early adopters and developers and lay the groundwork for the launch of virtual devices innovative mixed reality platforms in the coming years, Wurmser said.
