A new Study Highlights the Allure of Apple‘s Tightly Integrated Ecosystem as a Driving Force behind Android switchers


A recent study conducted by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) sheds light on an intriguing trend: the purchasing behavior of Android users switching to iPhone. The study reveals a consistent range of users transitioning from Android to iOS, hovering between 11% and 19% from 2019 to 2023.

Contrary to existing iPhone users who upgrade and often favor the latest models (only 21% opting for older models), a significant portion (29%) of Android switchers gravitate towards the iPhone SE 3, 12, or 13 (including the mini version). This trend extends beyond these specific models, with switchers demonstrating a higher propensity for acquiring older iPhones in general.
