iPhone 6 Release Shaping Up to be a Huge Upgrade Cycle

iPhone 6 Release Shaping Up to be a Huge Upgrade Cycle

Posted August 14, 2014 at 4:04pm by iClarified
The iPhone 6 release is shaping up to be a massive upgrade cycle for many iPhone owners, according to comScore's data points.

● 35% of all existing iPhone owners indicate they are likely to upgrade their device in the next six months.
● Those owning any iPhone prior to iPhone 4 have the highest likelihood of upgrading, at 46%.
● iPhone 4S represents the largest segment of iPhone owners at nearly 20 million, 40% of whom indicate they are ready to upgrade.
● iPhone 5C owners show the lowest likelihood of upgrading at 15%, which makes sense given that this model was only introduced to the market in late 2013 and was targeted to consumers at a lower price point.
● Interestingly, even though iPhone 5S owners have the latest and greatest version of the device, 24% of those owners – about 3.6 million in total – are already ready to upgrade.

comScore believes that iPhone 5s upgraders are the most unique as many of them are tech-savy users who want the latest and greatest from Apple. These upgraders are most likely to be a young adult male from an upper-income house, according to comScore's findings.


The U.S. market for smartphone screens 4.5-inches or larger has grown 108% over the last year, and Apple is finally looking to take a bite. With a huge market of eager iPhone owners ready to upgrade, and a new iPhone with an all new design and screen size just around the corner, this could be the biggest iPhone launch yet.

I upgraded from 4s to 5c because I got a good deal last year. I"m pretty content with my 5 because of the size, camera quality, battery,... like the others mentioned here. I'm curious about the 5.5" if Apple releases it as rumored. It would be awesome to have 5.5" as the main phone and my 5c will be a backup weekend phone when I'm out and about at the clubs, parties,....

As long as its going to be jailbroken I will buy 3 of them. Otherwise I will hold my Iphone5 jailbroken on 7.0.4 for now I don't care about anything else, the most important thing to me is the Jailbreak.

I've got a 5, and will hold out for the larger screen model, whenever that gets released.

I like my 5s the way it is, enough power, size, camera quality, and security.
