Survey in U.K. of those waiting on line, shows large preference for the Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Those on line found the smaller 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 to be a better value proposition than the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus. The former was perceived as a good value for the money by 67%, while 54% answered the same for the larger-screened version. Interestingly, as we've seen with other surveys, the Apple Watch doesn't seem to have won over the majority just yet. 54% of those surveyed said that they don't have plans to buy the timepiece.
47 of the 100 waiting on line were there because they are "die-hard Apple fans". Since the company that conducted the survey insurers the iPhone, they did ask some questions related to that business. Of those who had owned Apple products before, 24% had broken them. 18% had their Apple devices damaged by liquid, or were just lost. Only 37% had their Apple devices insured.
