“Apple is stealing users from rival Android in record numbers, according to a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners,” Joey Jackson reports for RCR Wireless News.
“The report found 26% of consumers who bought the iPhone 6s in the first month it was released were former Android users,” Jackson reports. “That is up 12% from last year and 23% since the launch of the iPhone 5s in 2013, according to the study.”
