Piper Jaffray surveyed roughly 7,500 American teens and found that “61% of teens surveyed own an iPhone, up from 55% just three months ago,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune. “67% expect their next phone to be iPhone. Google Android phones were No. 2 at 24%.”
“60% own a tablet, and 66% of those tablets are iPads (down 2 percentage points from last fall),” P.E.D. reports. “Of the 18% who plan to buy a tablet (or, more likely, ask their parents for one), 66% plan to get an iPad.”
Munster writes: According to our survey of ~7,500 teens across the US, about 6% of teens currently own a smartwatch. We view this number as slightly higher than expected given the relative lack of smartwatches on the market. Additionally, 17% of teens suggested they would purchase an iWatch if Apple were to launch it for $350.
P.E.D. reports, “Based in part on these results, Munster expects Apple to ship 5 million to 10 million iWatches in the first full year of sales.”
