Apple’s (AAPL - Free Report) iPhone XR launched on Oct 26 has been successful in attracting a higher number of Android users in the United States per a survey. Notably, Android is owned by Alphabet (GOOGL - Free Report) .
A Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) report stated that 16% of users migrated from the Android platform during the 30-day period after the launch of the iPhone XR. This compares favorably with 11% users who switched from Android after the launch of iPhone X in November 2017 and 12% after the launch of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in September 2017.
CIRP Partner and Co-Founder, Mike Levin notes that the lower-priced model and its features might have attracted Android users. Another CIRP report stated that Android users primarily incline toward low-cost iPhones due to the availability of cheaper Android phones. However, 40% of the switchers tend to pick Plus-sized iPhones due to larger displays of the Android models.
This follows reports that state Apple is battling production cuts due to lower demand for its iPhones.
