Over the last few weeks and months there has been plenty of speculation about Apple’s next iPhone model, no surprise there then. Many rumours claim that Apple will announce two iPhones this year, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.
Apple’s iPhone 5 was only the seventh best-selling handset in the UK last month, according to new data from price comparison website uSwitch.
The Mobile Tracker Polls for January show that the Samsung Galaxy S3, the mid-range Samsung Galaxy Ace and the Samsung Galaxy S2 took the top spots, all outselling Apple’s flagship handset.
iPhone owners spend more on wireless fees than owners of any other handset, be they Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone, according to a report.
The new data report was provided to AllThingsD by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) that claims the average monthly carrier bill of the typical iPhone user is the highest in the smartphone market.
The CIRP report had found that nearly 60 percent of iPhone users polled during October to December 2012 spent in excess of $100 per month, with 10 percent spending $200 or more with their carrier.
Michael Levin, co-founder of CIRP, has this to say on the issue: “We think it has to do with their data plans and carriers, rather than their usage habits. They are all on expensive data plans, unlike Android users, some of which are on prepaid or unsubsidized plans with regional carriers.”
