Survey shows that teenagers still favor the Apple iPhone over Android
posted by Alan F. / Oct 14, 2016, 10:41 PM
In April, 75% of the teens surveyed said that their next handset would be an Apple iPhone. The October survey showed that figure rising to 79%. The percentage of teens that currently own an iPhone rose from 69% in the previous survey to 74% in the latest one. Things being what they are in the industry, we can assume that 21% of the teens will make an Android device their next handset, and that 26% currently own an Android powered phone.
Other information to come out of the survey shows that the messaging app of the moment for teens is Snapchat. That might be interesting news for Piper Jaffray clients to hear since the company (now known as Snap) will be going public with an IPO expected to take place in March next year. Snapchat was listed as the top messaging app by 35% of teens. Instagram was second with 24%, followed by the 13% who favor Twitter and Facebook.
The average age of the 10,000 teens surveyed was 16; 55% were male and the average household income was $68,000.

There's a reason why we don't let teen-agers lead the country... They aren't very smart... Being hip with teen-agers is being hip with a bunch of people with brains half developed. Have you seen the dumb s**t teen-agers do these days???

Can we put the blame entirely on our kids? There are way too many adults on this planet who don't deserve the right to reproduce. If someone needs an app to better parent their kids... that's a problem.

Sorry, nobody trust MSM polls and surveys anymore.

Just by using the acronym 'MSM' I can tell where you will be coming from and that I can discount anything which comes after it. So sad that people don't know the difference between journalism and rhetoric.

You only have to look at the average household income in the article to realize that the majority of these kids are fairly well off and never have to buy anything themselves. these surveys don't represent the average teen at all, except for maybe Snapchat for sharing nude photos.

Yeah because they think it is cool to have a apple on the back of their phone.

But none the less correct. Teens are way more into what the others have, what is popular. It's like that with all their stuff, it needs to be certain brands. It has been like that since the 80's or even further back. It has nothing to do with hating apple or something.
