The most anticipated Apple smartphone ever and the big news of iPhone 6 release date, is expected to be launched worldwide in late 2014 or early 2015, but a survey has made some glaring exposure that buying interest has steadily declined since the arrival of the iPhone 5S.
The company is hoping a rosy outlook for iPhone 6 and if it turns true then it would be a great news for its investors. But Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster reports that interest of buying iPhone has declined.
For the Munster’s latest survey, the investigators questioned1, 016 Americans about their plans to buy a smartphone in the next three months. The survey revealed that only 34 percent of the participants expressed interest in buying an iPhone. The more shocking was that the figures have witnessed a gradual decline in last 5-6 months following the launch of the 5S. It was 39 percent in February, 44 percent i December and 50 percent in September.
Meanwhile, the tech giant is expecting to do a good business with the iphone 6. The iPhone accounts to 57 percent of Apple’s total revenue in its most recent quarter. In such a scenario a jump in sales for this device will be great for the business.
