Apple’s iPhone 8 Will Need to Displace iPhone 6S To Become Most Used Smartphone in the World

Despite Apple iPhone 7 Launch

RESTON, Va., May 10, 2017 — ScientiaMobile released their Mobile Overview Report (MOVR) last week, in which it found that the iPhone 6S was the most used smartphone model in the world. This is despite the Apple iPhone 7 launch in September 2016, eight months ago.

According to the Q1 2017 MOVR, the Apple iPhone 6S became the most used in February 2017 and is now at almost 8% of all global smartphone browsing. In comparison, the iPhone 6 peaked in popularity a year earlier, February 2016, at 14.6%, 488 days after launch. Today, the iPhone 6S usage continues to grow despite the iPhone 7 launch. The iPhone 7 user-base is still on an upward trajectory, ending March at 3.6%, earning third place among iPhones. Given the size of the iPhone 6 user-base, the upgrade potential for the iPhone 7 and 8 is significant if Apple can retain customers.

Apple iPhone launch history indicates that the Apple iPhone 6S is the most used Apple smartphone.
