“A new survey of consumers has found that a record number of people indicated they are ‘likely’ to buy Apple’s next iPhone, expected to launch later this year,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“ChangeWave’s latest survey, conducted in June and released on Monday, found that 14 percent of consumers indicated they are “very likely” to buy a so-called “iPhone 5.” Another 17 percent of people said they are “somewhat likely” to buy Apple’s next iPhone,” Hughes reports. “‘The biggest finding of the survey is the unprecedented level of advanced demand for the next generation Apple iPhone (i.e., the ‘iPhone 5′) — which based on these survey numbers easily dwarfs the advance demand of any previous iPhone launch,’ ChangeWave said.”
Hughes reports, “Last October, 10 percent of consumers said they were ‘very likely’ to buy an iPhone 4S, while 11.5 percent identified themselves as ‘somewhat likely.’ The iPhone 4S went on to have a record breaking debut, resulting in sales of 37 million iPhones during the holiday 2011 launch quarter.”
