Ahead of iPhone XS launch, report reveals iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s are still most popular iPhones
It's just a few hours to go for the new iPhones to launch. There are going to be three iPhones this year, most likely the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Plus and the iPhone XR. Just a day ahead of iPhone 2018 announcement, on Tuesday, an analytics company called Mixpanel in its latest report states the names of the most used or popular iPhones in the past four decades. No, it's not iPhone X. Surprisingly enough, it's the iPhone 7, followed by the iPhone 6s.
The analytics company notes in the report that they have analysed almost 11,211,484,245 iPhone events over the last four years and has come to a conclusion that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s are still the two most used iPhones. The two old generation iPhones have beat the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and also the anniversary edition iPhone X. This shows that the people or to streamline a bit, the Apple fans probably love simplicity over innovation. At least most of them, if not all.
The list is topped by the iPhone 7 with 17.34 per cent market share. The iPhone 7 is followed by iPhone 6s with 13.01 per cent. The third position in the list is the iPhone 7 Plus with 12.06 per cent and then comes the iPhone X which has managed to garner a market share of 12 per cent, which comparatively is a splendid job considering it's just a year that the phone has launched. The iPhones with the lowest market share include the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 series of phones.
The report sort of indicates that the demand for the upcoming affordable iPhone will be much higher than the other two high-end iPhones of the iPhone X successors. Apple is said to launch three iPhones even this year like last. One will be the successor to the iPhone X and will be called iPhone XS. The iPhone XS is expected to come with 5.8-inch OLED display. The second and the most expensive iPhone launching this year is expected to be the iPhone XS Plus which is said to come with 6.5-inch OLED display. The third device coming from Apple tonight will draw the maximum attention. This will be an affordable iPhone which will come with 6.1-inch LCD display and cost between $600 - $700, as predicted by analyst Kuo.
