# ** Android users switching to iPhone reached the highest level in 5 years** **According to the results of a study of iPhone owners in the past 12 months, up to 15% of users switched from Android phones to their children. The biggest number since 2018.** According to a research result just released by *Consumer Intelligence Research Partners* (CIRP), the percentage of Android users switching to iPhone is at the highest level in the past 5 years. Specifically, CIRP data on iPhone owners shows that from March 2022, up to 15% of users switched from Android phones. Another interesting figure is that 83% of iPhone buyers during this same time period owned an Apple device. However, 15% is still not the highest number of Android users switching to iPhones. The highest level ever recorded in 2016 when up to 21% of Android users switched to Apple products. Over the years, the iPhone has garnered a loyal following thanks to the dominance of the Apple ecosystem. Previously, the CIRP report also revealed that iPhone users tend to keep the device longer before upgrading. This time increases year by year, except for 2022. Specifically, the percentage of iPhone users who have not upgraded for 3 years or more steadily increased from 26% in 2019 to 29% in the following year and 34% in 2021 – the highest rate according to CIRP statistics. In this year, 9% of iPhone users changed their iPhones within 1 year of use, 26% used them for 1-2 years, and 31% kept them for 2-3 years before launching. However, in 2022, the trend suddenly reversed when the percentage of iPhone users for 3 years or more dropped sharply to 20%, bringing other groups to a significant increase. By 2023, the trend of users holding iPhones longer returns to the way it was before, with 31% having used the device for 3 years or more. This could cause Apple to worry about demand for its upcoming product lines.
