Apple's quarterly earnings report, Cook said there are more people choose iPhone as the main smart phone, which has 30 of users from the Android camp. Unfortunately, Apple's management does not provide an exact number, we believe that this figure is likely to reach a level of 10 million, and in view of the high loyalty of apple iPhone users, is expected to convert Android iPhone users will continue to increase.
30 Android smartphone users is how much
In the first quarter, Apple sold 48040000 iPhone, an increase of 22. As Android for iPhone users, Apple has not announced the specific number, it is possible to actually occupy about 20.
If the number of Apple's iPhone sales in the last quarter was sold for the first time to buy Apple smart phone users, then the remaining half of the real from the Android camp converted to iPhone users is about 7200000. Considering the proportion of first-time buyers is not so high, there may be only about 20, then the real switch from iPhone to Android users may be more than 1000 Wan Huo 12000000.
So why the first time to buy the iPhone ratio will be less and less? Here to explain.
Normally, with the smart phone market is becoming more mature, the first time to buy the number of users of iPhone will be decreased. In 2012, research firm SanfordC.Bernstein data show that only 1/3 of iPhone users actually purchased a new generation of products. Some people said that in January this year, another Worldpanel Kantar data said that in 2014 the fall of nearly 80 of iPhone sales are new, why this figure in the last year, a big rise? It is clear that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for big screen work is not.
With the increasing number of users of smart phones, the number of first-time users to buy iPhone will inevitably decline, because the total number of potential buyers will decline. Prior to Research Pew's report said the United States has 2/3 of adults have a smart phone, Gartner, said China's second quarter smartphone sales fell by 4, more important is the Ministry of the report said China's mobile phone users exceeded 1300000000, it shows the number of smart phones has been much, a lot of market smart phones have emerged over saturated signs.
Android iPhone number will not grow long
Although tens of millions of Android users for iPhone looks very exaggerated, but the reality is still not enough to threaten the Android camp. IDC's heart report shows that in the first quarter, there are 355000000 smart phone global shipments, of which about 300000000 are Android operating system, and IDC is expected in the next four years, Android's market share will continue to remain stable, hovering around 81.
In other words, the real number of users from the Android phone for iPhone in the future may be very limited, whether it is short-term or long-term. For apple, the only advantage is the iPhone user loyalty is very high, once use may wouldn't exchange Android phones. Consumer intelligence research partner agency CIRP data, said the second quarter of this year, 78 of iPhone users choose to upgrade directly to the new iPhone, rather than the replacement of other platforms.
Every quarter earnings, although Apple will clearly disclose the number of users per quarter of their own smart phones, but has never given iPhone Android user number, only Cook stressed in an analyst conference call, this trend will be more frequent, we believe that the iPhone will grow in the next quarter, mainly based on the number of users we see (Android users) for iPhone growth." It remains to be seen whether Cook's predictions come true.
