Now the smartphone – a common household communications device. Convenient, without in any way but to make him an object of worship, at least, stupid. It is believed that now buy them as, for example, refrigerators or washing machines. For three years, and then for a longer period. And every year this trend is increasing. Obviously, in this there can be no doubt. Still a bit expensive and advanced smartphones become extinct as a species, they are no longer needed. But which iPhone buy most often, and how things are going with tablets?

The studies were conducted in the United States, based on the latest statistics and data from previous years. Was studied not smartphones in General and iPhone. The most popular brand of smartphones in the U.S. market, a high standard of living (even now) – but despite some peculiarities of the considered market, the global trend of the smartphone market is not much different. Studies had two. In the first of them was looking for an answer to the question “how often do users update your iPhone, how to relate the number of groups with different update frequency, and how this ratio has varied from March 2016 to March 2020”. About this not so long ago we wrote. The accuracy of the data, of course, has not been tested, responsibility for the false statements, the respondents were not carrying, but the idea of the ratio of these four groups with this simple method you can get, though rough, but accurate enough to draw conclusions. The same poll was recently in our Telegram chat, you can see the results.

Yes, wishing to be updated less often becomes more and more, but to say that “everything stopped, and no one wants to be updated more often than once in five years” – still not entirely correct. The number of those who updated more frequently than once a year, sometimes even growing. In cases where the Apple correctly understands the needs of its customers.

The second study determined the popularity in the American market different models of iPhone in March 2020 and compared the obtained results with the data of March 2019. There is a third study, but it in the end.

The most popular iPhone in the year 2020

In the first quarter of 2020 prior to the start of sales of iPhone SE second generation, the most popular models of iPhone was iPhone 11 all modifications, collectively they have 66% of the U.S. market.

  • iPhone 8 — 8,7%;
  • iPhone 8 Plus – 5.3 per cent;
  • iPhone XR – 20%;
  • iPhone 11 – 37%;
  • Pro iPhone 11 – 16%;
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max – 13%.

In the first quarter of 2019, it was iPhone XR, which occupied 37.3 per cent of the market.

  • iPhone 7 – 12%;
  • iPhone 7 Plus – 7.3 per cent;
  • iPhone 8 – 10,7%;
  • iPhone 8 Plus – 11.3 per cent;
  • the iPhone XS – 6,7%;
  • iPhone XS Max – 14,7%;
  • iPhone XR is 37.3%.

Pay attention to the fact, contrary to popular opinion: dear iPhone is not like an endangered species, and the results of the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone 8 Plus in 2019 was good (at the peak of the “General disappointment in iPhone”).

The most popular tablets

This study was conducted by another company (Strategy Analytics), it was held in a different geographical area (called “the whole world”), and its subject was not an iPhone, and all the tablets that are produced and sold in 2019, all producing their companies. More precisely, even not the tablets as they use chips. The study I liked, but on a separate article received the survey results do not pull.

iPad, by a wide margin, the leader. It takes into account only the chips used in tablets, if the same chip is used in some other devices (iPhone or Apple TV, for example), they were not counted.

The production of tablet chips is a worthy and profitable segment of the global micro-electronics with combined revenues in 2019 at $ 1.9 billion.

How much estimated Apple system-on-chip used in the iPad, I do not understand. Information about the cost of Apple’s top secret, and besides, over time, it changes.

In the first place, occupying 44% of the market – Apple. Because Apple processors are not used in any tablet except the iPad, this is another confirmation of the special position the iPad in the tablet world. 44% of the year. In the fourth quarter of 2019, the share of Apple in this segment of the global micro-electronics has increased to 47%. Second place at collective participant, designated as “other”. Among others, such as Samsung and MediaTek (they have a fourth and fifth place in “individual standings”).
