Apple’s iPhones are incredibly popular and now according to a recent report, there are now more than 100 million iPhones in use in the US.
The news comes in a report form the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), who have said that Apple is now over 100 million active iPhones in the US.
According to the report, around 4 million of the handsets in use were the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus devices that launched back in September. 58 million of the iPhones being used were for last years iPhone 6 and 6 Plus smartphones.
This installed base grew on average 8% per quarter for the past eight quarters. In the September 2015 quarter, the installed base grew 4%, compared to 6% in the September 2014 quarter… “The data again shows that growth in the installed base of iPhones in the US has slowed,” said Josh Lowitz, Partner and Co-Founder of CIRP. “In previous quarters, we saw the installed base grow by as much as 17%, in the December 2013 quarter after the launch of the iPhone 5S and 5C. As the US market matures, Apple has fewer first time smartphone buyers to add to their base, and faces the challenge of attracting loyal Android users.”
It will be interesting to see how Apple does with their iPhone sales over the holiday shopping season, the company is expected to announce record iPhone sales once again in their next quarterly report.
