But Apple seems to have a different opinion: according to data Digitimes, TSMC and Foxconn received from Apple the largest order for production, starting with the iPhone 6. Will help this alleged updated pricing policy Apple.
And the polls confirm the company’s point of view. Loup Ventures talked to the Americans. The survey involved 530 people. The sample, of course, is not very representative, but it shows a certain picture.
According to the company, 48% of respondents want to update. Last year, this figure was at 25%! Of course, “they want to upgrade” and “update” – completely different things, but these figures for Apple look very interesting.
Among the respondents were also Android users. 19% of them are considering buying an iPhone, which is 8 percentage points higher than last year’s figure.
