Christmas is a perfect time to be with the family and enjoy the warmth of the lights and the joy they give off, but it is also a time of year in which we all give and receive the odd gift, therefore, it is one of the best excuses to renew our iPhone, or at least, that’s what the US population must have thought since, according to Flurry Analytics, the iPhone has been the star gift for Christmas. Keep reading, because the data will surprise you.
The iPhone, the king of Christmas
According to a new report by Flurry Analytics , which uses data from more than a million mobile applications to know the number of devices activated during a certain period of time, it states that, at least in the US, 9 out of 10 smartphones activated on Christmas Day they were an iPhone, a fact that surely has been very good in Cupertino.
However, the king has not been any of the new iPhone, since neither the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which is the most demanded within the iPhone 12 generation, has managed to sneak into the top two positions, since, It occupies the third place, something that may also come as a surprise because the most expensive iPhone is precisely the one that has had the most success this Christmas within the iPhone 12 family.
The iPhone 11, one more year, has been the great winner, and occupies, again, the first position, followed by the iPhone XR, it seems that the novelties that the iPhone 12 has, have not been enough to encourage the majority part of the public to launch for the iPhone 12, or perhaps, the increase in its price compared to the iPhone 11 has caused many users to opt for a model that we can still classify as one of the best smartphones on the market, even more so if we take into account the price from which it starts.
After the first three positions, which occupy iPhone 11, iPhone XR and iPhone 12 Pro Max, they are followed by iPhone 12, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone SE, iPhone 1 Pro, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 and it is not, until the tenth position, where we find a device that is not Apple, since we have the LG K30.
What about the iPhone 12 mini?
Although this news should undoubtedly be well received in Cupertino, it is worrying to say the least, to see how one of the star devices in 2020, such as the iPhone 12 mini, is outsold by the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and even the iPhone SE. Perhaps, the public expected an iPhone 12 mini at a lower price, and for this reason, perhaps, a good part of this public has preferred to opt for either cheaper models, or models with larger dimensions.
