The product is ubiquitous by income group, age, race, sex and region of the country — more than half of nearly all demographic groups report owning at least one Apple product. The household ownership rate is below 50 percent for only a few groups, including those with incomes under $30,000, retirees and women over age 50. By contrast, 87 percent of American with incomes over $100,000 report owning at least one Apple product.
The wealthiest Americans own about 4.7 Apple products per household compared to 1 for the poorest. Americans in the West own 3.7, compared to 2.2 for those in the South.
