If you’re the type who really go crazy status symbols then you’d really need to get an iPhone if you haven’t already. A new study has shown that people who are rich prefer the iPhone over other mobile phones.
The research was conducted by The Luxury Institute. The study involved studying the app usage of people who earn a minimum of $150,000 a year. They discovered that 45 percent of those who were observed use an iPhone. This is followed by people who use an Android smartphone (35 percent). This is a big difference in numbers when it comes to market share. Android already enjoys a market share of 50 percent, while the iOS has 30 percent of the market.
The study also revealed that those who are well off would often download more – with 80 percent having downloaded apps. They also tend to pay for apps that they want. The study also revealed that those who are wealthy do not download a lot of games. But then this could because the average age of the people who participated in the study is 52 years.
The Luxury Institute contacted 603 people with an average income of $295,000 and have a net worth of $2.8 million for this study.
Will you buy an iPhone for the sole purpose of showing off and making people believe that you are wealthy?
