Kantar has actually refuted bleak suggestions that record sales of the iPhone 6/Plus might make it tougher for Apple to persuade customers to upgrade, stating that its information “recommends Apple has ample chance for upgrades in Q4 2015 and 2016.”

The downhearted view advance in some quarters goes like this. There was a great deal of bottled-up demand for larger-screened iPhones. Everybody who desired one has now bought one, so upgrade rates will now tail off substantially.

Kantar says that this view ignores that people will continue to update from older designs. It points out that the average U.S. iPhone user upgrades every 25 months– and 31 % of owners bought their existing iPhone more than two years ago …… [In the U.S.],

upgrades will [be to] not only the brand-new iPhone designs, however [likewise] the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which should experience the drop in price we have seen in previous years for retiring flagship devices. In the United States, 32 % of iPhone 5s sales were produced after the launch of the iPhone 6 and, in the three months ending in July 2015, the iPhone 5s was still the fourth very popular smartphone in the US. Kantar’s information shows much more promise in China, says the company. We expect

the success of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to not just continue, but to accelerate

as rates drop. For reference, it is fascinating to keep in mind that 36 % of overall iPhone 5s sales in urban China were made after September 2014. In China, the typical replacement cycle for an iPhone is 19 months, while nearly a third of owners have actually now owned their

existing model for more than 24 months– recommending lots of latent demand. Kantar kept in mind that Apple was seeing strong migration from Android. In Europe, 27 % of new smartphone purchasers migrated from Android to Apple, with 9 % of American purchasers doing the same. The business reported that in the 12 months ending in June, iOS market share grew 6.3 % in Japan and 2.5 % in Europe, while dropping 1.3 % in the UNITED STATE.

In the very same duration, Android dropped 7 % in Japan, 4.1 % in Europe and climbed 1.7 % in the US. If you’re planning an upgrade yourself, and desire to trade-in your existing iPhone, Gazelle is assuring to beat the price offered by either Apple or any carrier.Filed under: AAPL Company, iOS Devices Tagged: Apple Inc, iOS, iPhone, iPhone 6, iphone 6 plus, iphone 6s, iPhone sales For more details about AAPL Company, iOS Devices, and iPhone continue checking out at 9to5Mac.
