Washington, Apr 12: A new survey has found that 61 percent of US teens have iPhones, up from 48 percent last year.
It’s also almost double the percentage from two years ago, CNet reported.
Piper Jaffray’s Taking Stock With Teens report for spring 2014 reveals about the drift from Facebook that many see and hope continues.
However, the figures also showed what appears to be a peculiar commitment to Apple.
Of these respondents, 61 percent owned an iPhone; 67 percent expect their next phone to be an iPhone.
The surveyors this year talked to 7,500 teens, whose average age was 16.4. Most were from families whose household income was $55,000.
The two dominant brands were Nike in apparel and Apple in electronics.
Sixty percent of these kids own a tablet. The choice of 66 percent of the ones who do was the iPad. (ANI)
