American and European Apple iPhone owners show less loyalty to the phone than in prior years

For the first time since 2007, fewer Apple iPhone owners in the U.S. or Euroupe said that there next phone would definitely or possibly be another Apple; despite this slight drop in the states and a larger drop in Europe, the majority of Apple iPhone owners remain loyal to the device...

The power of the MAGIC SPELL is reducing fast, after the BIG old magician left the world and new one is NOT as good as old magician...

It's not really that Apple fans are leaving Apple. It's more like Apple needs to bring out more than one phone a year, and more than one size fits all. I've bought the iphone 3,4, and 4S, but couldn't wait for the iphone 5, plus i wanted a bigger screen than 4". I use a iphone and a Android SG-Note, but i think Apple could make more than one style and size.

Apple's issue is that diversifying the product line costs more, and brings down profit margins. They like the huge margins that the clueless keep giving them.

I read a recent survey that iPad owners are miffed about the iPad4 being released so soon. Their iPad2 and 3 are still completely usable, but suddenly it feels old to them. Apple was almost religious in releasing 1 update a year per product but now that's all thrown to the wayside. Some see it as greed, and others see it as desperation. Whatever it might be, people are becoming more jaded over the direction that Apple is taking with some of their products.
And yes, I have to think Samsung's ads nailed it. "Finally, we're getting the things we should have had last year," "Maybe we'll get that next year." That has to resonate on iPhone users to some degree, their phone was supposed to be the best you could buy, not lacking features that other phones have. Samsung's marketing just might be better than Apple's right now.

Wife still has the original iPAD and has no plans on buying a different iPAD when hers works just fine and does everything it needs to do.

Exactly. I see Android users upset when a better phone comes out three months after they bought theirs, makes no sense to me. It's always going to happen, be happy with what you purchased.

Obvious as to why loyalty is down in Europe...In the U.S., maybe because the diva known as Lebron is now advertising the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
