50% of iPhone Users Never Sync With iTunes?

David Chartier from OneFPS is reporting that 50% of iPhone users never sync with iTunes after activating the device.

A little birdie says that about 50 percent of Apple Store customers who need to get their iPhones swapped have never plugged them into iTunes after the initial activation and sync. This is a big reason, according to this birdie, for why Apple Store Geniuses are excited about iCloud.

Apple's new services will enable backup protection for those users who don't use iTunes and will also wireless sync with iTunes if you do.

OTA updates.... lets make the device more and more like android every update.. Devs just need to step in and block the OTA before it screws something up bad

I agree with you..I dont like the fact that it updates itself...I dont like that ..I want to have control of the updates i want to update my stuff when I want to... Just like an xbox just fucked up my Xbox 360 with newest update ..forced me to update and flashed my DVD drivers reset it to original setting that I cant play l burned game..now I am fucked..its basically the same thing..

Come on...not that I'm an Apple fan, but no device is going to perform an OTA update without prompting the user first, at which point you can say NO/CANCEL. Android works this way. If Apple developers blindly update without getting user permission, then they are morons. Then again, Apple is a control freak company, so they might.

That is actually lower than I thought. Most of the iPhone owners I know do not sync their phones at all. Some are still running iOS 2.x.x

Are you a liar or stupid? iOS 2.x? Really? What are they using, an iPhone 1? Do you think 2.x will run on an iPhone 3 or 4? Shaddup please and stop trolling....
