Interestingly a while back there was a study done in which it was suggested that the iPhone was starting to lose its cool factor amongst teens and started appealing more to the older generation. Considering that my parents and older relatives have started adopting iPhones and iPads, while younger cousins have gone the Android route, that study seemed pretty spot on. Thanks to a new poll conducted by analysts Piper Jaffray, they have found that out of the 5,200 teens they polled, half of them apparently own the iPhone and is actually an increase of 8% from last fall.
The survey went on to find out that 62% of the teens surveyed plan on buying the iPhone as their next device, and 23% did state that they were planning on buying an Android phone next which is actually an increase of 1% from the last survey. We guess that despite the previous study showing that the iPhone has lost its “cool factor” amongst teens, there are still teens out there who wouldn’t mind getting one anyway.
