Apple iPhone XR wooes more Android users

Tech Talk

While Apple may not be having the best of its sales with the new iPhone X series, the lower-priced iPhone XR is surprisingly winning hearts of Android users.

According to a new report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, Android users are finding the iPhone XR as the best device to upgrade to. These users made up for 16 percent of iPhone buyers in the month after the lower-priced iPhone XR released in October.

The analysts rule that the iPhone XR did serve to attract current Android users with its features and pricing and Apple was able to place the smartphone to appeal to potential OS switchers from Android.

The iPhone XR accounted for 32 percent of total US iPhone sales in the 30-day period post the launch, while the XS and XS Max together accounted for 35 percent.
