Survey says...demand for Apple iPhone 6 still strong

According to brokerage firm Piper Jaffray, demand continues to rise for the Apple iPhone 6.

I don't understand why people are so surprised. Demand for IPhones has been strong for a decade now. Every i device released so far has been a bestseller. Apple is people's favorite brand and they have earnd it, with hard work ...

Currently I have got a brand new phone and it is Samsung galaxy s4 mini. It's rooted and on cyanogenmod, not depend from Google and Samsung . Also customised to everything black on the screen, because of amoled. It is very fast and battery life is 3 to 4 days, so why to buy expensive and latest phones? High specification to run a Facebook or what? Also who are the iPhone people? I think that they buying those phones because of the fashion or it makes them feel famous or something? Ask anyone of iPhone users about the specification of the iPhone? - they don't know much about it. Also software in iPhone users language mean - pressing the icons on the screen and few more things about the Facebook. They don't comparing it with any other phones, that's why they don't know that iPhone cost 3-4 times more than other phones with even better specification. If they are so proud of how the iPhone it's made- body materials etc... Why to keep it in the cover case? As most of them do! Some of them even buying cases in the poundland- £500 phone in the case for a £1 :-) No other company than apple gives on sale something worth so cheap, and like in old phones components cost them nothing- (Old processors, not much ram memory etc..) Selling it to people for terribly high price, and make those idiots happy. But as we know fashion cost a lot of money- pay the price if you wanna be a posh iPhone user. Even if somebody love an iPhone why not buy an iPhone 4s - still chance to buy brand new ones for much less and it's not much difference to the newer versions- what a waste of money called a fashion.

Because they dont have a chance to try a good android phone ~ with similar price tag. Please, I don't really understand people always compare Iphone to the much cheaper phone. 5 of my friends, I persuade them to switch to a flag-ship androids, and they're stick with it without considering going back.

Not sure if its the article that is lacking information, or the survey itself. But without knowing about the control group, its impossible to make any real logical conclusions. Are the "respondants" all from any certain city? San Fransico for example is extremely iPhone friendly. Are the "respondants" a cross section of everyone everywhere? Because if so, the math does not track. 40% of all people plus the 20% (approx) that already have iPhone 6's make 60% of everyone wanting iPhone 6's? Does not make sense. We need more info!!
