Apple iPhone 6s Figures Show Just How Much Size Matters

By  | 

It looks like when it comes to the Apple iPhone 6s size does really matter. Apple gave everyone a big surprise back in 2014 when they revealed the 5.5 inch version of the iPhone and the 4.7 inch iPhone 6. Of course Apple knew that they had to go bigger so they could keep up with the likes of Samsung and other phone makers. Now it seems that going larger has worked for Apple.

A survey taken recently from 500 people during October and December 2016 showed that those buying a new iPhone in the fourth quarter, 32% of them chose the iPhone 7 Plus and 40% the 4.7 inch iPhone 7. You can compare this to the same period the year before when the iPhone 6S Plus was chosen by 19% of people. This means that those buying an iPhone have gone more for the larger version as it has doubled.

One of the things that does play a role when buying a smartphone is the price tag. The 5.5 inch iPhone comes in at around $299. Should Apple drop the price tag by around $99 when they launch a new phone, more people still may go for the larger version.

The numbers are superb though and more so when you take into account how people are interested in buying the bigger screen phones. It was said that Apple could reveal an iPhone 8 with an OLED panel of 5.8 inches.

But do you think Apple made the right choice when they launched the 5.5 inch iPhone?
