83% of young Americans have iPhones – and more want to buy one soon

Apple Online Store extends returns period for Christmas shopping, including in Brazil

Much is said about a crisis, which is undeniable, in the popularity of iPhones. Of course, it is possible that the new Apple smartphones will reverse the situation and take the brand back to the top of the world, but at the moment, the scenario is one of caution and consumers turning their attention to more attractive alternatives or more reasonable cost / benefit . A specific group, however, seems to remain indifferent to this tide: United States youth.

According to a recent survey by Piper Jaffray, brought by AppleInsider, 83% of young Americans have an Apple smartphone. This is the highest rate ever detected by the firm, albeit with a small advantage: in the last survey of its kind, 82% of teenagers owned iPhones in the USA.

Perhaps more importantly, it should be noted that an even greater number of young people in the country want an iPhone, regardless of whether they currently have one: 86% of the individuals interviewed said they wanted to buy an Apple smartphone soon – which does not represent growth compared to the last survey, but shows that kids’ interest in iPhones has remained at an almost steady high since Steve Jobs introduced the original model of the cell phone , back in 2007.

The news is good for Apple because obviously young people are the adults of the future. Therefore, the Apple has the whole condition of the world to pull into its ecosystem the largest possible number of users that are now entering the technological world – and, remember, we are talking about one of the largest consumer markets in the world (and most important to Apple).

Still talking about research, 10% of young people Americans claimed to have a device Android (an increase of 1% compared to the last survey); 20% of them, in turn, said they had a Apple Watch – While 23% of them said they plan to buy an Apple watch soon. The survey interviewed a sample of 9,500 teenagers around the United States, it is worth noting.

Not bad, is it?
