A recent study by Piper Sandler suggested that most US teens prefer iPhones over Android phones. This is not a piece of new information since we see every other teen holding an iPhone.
Piper Sandler recently conducted their 41st semi-annual Generation Z survey. More than 7,000 teens participated in the survey. The organization reported that 88% of the US teens own an iPhone, while 90% expect to get one soon.
The report also noted that 33% of teens hold a part-time job. There has been an improvement in their spending to $2,165.
Apple has become more than a smartphone; it’s a status symbol. Then Apple’s iMessage is one of a kind, and most US teens use it as a two-way mode of communication. These are the factors making the iPhone the most preferred smartphone in the country.
According to another survey conducted by Counterpoint in 2020, around 50% of users own an Apple device in North America, followed by Samsung with just about 25%.
iPhone is not only popular in the US but Europe as well. In Europe, 22% of smartphone users own an Apple device. However, the rest of the world is still a big fan of Android-based smartphones, with Samsung taking the lead in many regions, followed by Huawei.
It has been a long time since I joined Research Snipers. Though I have been working as a part-time tech-news blogger for the past few months, it still feels good to be part of the team. Besides this, I am working with a Canadian-based real estate business and running my own financial blog.
