Move aside Playstation 4. Get out of the way Xbox One. This holiday shopping season may be all about the iPhone. The Los Angeles Times last week highlighted a recent survey of 500 teens aged 12-17 regarding what type of gifts are at the top of their holiday wish lists.
According to the survey, close to 33% of respondents indicated that they wanted an iPhone this holiday season while 24% indicated that they have their eyes set on Apple’s iPad. Coming in third was the recently released PlayStation 4 with 20%, followed by the Microsoft Xbox One with 13%.
That the iPhone is popular amongst teens shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, even though analysts might have you believe that interest in the iPhone is waning. According to an October “Teen Survey” conducted by Gene Munster, 55% of teens already own an iPhone while 65% of surveyed teens expect their next phone to be an iPhone model in some form or another.
