Demand for the iPhone 9 could be far higher than initially predicted according to a survey by technology research firm Loup Ventures.
Researchers asked 530 US-based iPhone users when they planned to upgrade their handsets. To their surprise, almost half of respondents said they were planning to upgrade within the next 12 months – far more than last year.
Better start queueing
According to the survey, 48% of current iPhones owners intend to upgrade to a newer iPhone model in the next year, compared to just 25% in 2017.
