Why Android users are less interested in Apple’s iPhone 13 models: Report

Why Android users are less interested in Apple’s iPhone 13 models: Report

Android users are significantly less interested in the iPhone 13 models than they were for the iPhone 12 models, having been put off by the continued lack of a fingerprint scanner and concerns around child safety features, says a new report.

According to a new survey by SellCell, only 18.3 percent of Android users would consider switching to an iPhone 13, which is a significant decline from last year when 33.1 percent of Android users were open to switching to an iPhone 12 model.

The survey, conducted earlier this month, asked more than 5,000 current Android users in the US aged 18 or over for their opinions about Apple’s upcoming products, revealing how the iPhone 13 and Apple’s other expected products are viewed by customers of the rival platform ahead of their launch, reports MacRumors.

Of the iPhone 13 lineup, expected to consist of a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max, 39.8 percent of the Android users open to switching are most interested in the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

A little over 36 percent are most interested in the iPhone 13 Pro, 19.5 percent are most interested in the iPhone 13 and just 4.6 per cent are interested in the iPhone 13 mini, the report said.

When the potential switchers were asked what would compel them to switch to an iPhone 13 model, 51.4 percent cited longer software support, 23.8 percent cited the Apple ecosystem and 11.4 percent cited better privacy.

In the survey, 31.9 percent of Android users said that the iPhone 13’s lack of a fingerprint scanner for authentication was the main reason they will not consider switching. 16.7 percent said that they will not consider switching due to iOS’s limited customization, 12.8 percent pointed to iOS’s lack of support for sideloading apps.

Also, 12.1 percent cited general design and hardware and 10.4 percent said that “intrusive” scanning for child sexual abuse material (CSAM) was the main reason for not switching, the report said.
