Average Apple User Has $100 In Content Per DeviceJuly 14, 2011 2:40 am
We have written about iOS statistics before – we spotted this today:
“With a current installed base of about 225 million iOS-powered units, Apple customers have invested about $22 billion in content, cumulatively, for those devices, analyst Chris Whitmore with Deutsche Bank said in a note to investors on Monday. He sees the install base growing to more than 300 million units by the end of calendar year 2012, with sales more than $30 billion by the end of next year.
“This averages to (about) $100 of content for each installed device; suggesting switching costs are relatively high (not to mention the time required to port),” Whitmore wrote. “While Apple’s best in class user experience is combined with these growing switching costs, the resulting customer loyalty is unparalleled.”
