Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook has just announced that Cupertino has sold 600 million iOS devices to date. The number itself is impressive, but Apple’s CEO wanted to stress something else - the fact that customers use these devices a lot. Actually, not just a lot - Cook claims iPhone is used 50% more than Android phones.
"I'm happy to tell you people are using our products substantially more than other products," Cook said on stage. "iPhone users use their phones 50% more than Android users."
To back up his claims, Cook used a somewhat strange metric saying shopping traffic is higher on iPhones. It’s hard to generalize like this given that Android phones differ a lot and hit a lot price points, while Apple only releases one high-end device per year, but claiming more phone usage on the iPhone is definitely polarizing and hard-to-prove.
In other stats, Apple boasts the highest customer satisfaction of 73% and over 90% of its installed base is using the latest version of the software. Nice.
