From Californian hipsters to Missouri growers, everyone needs a good phone. But between the two choice of Apple vs Android phones, who likes which better?
I caught myself wondering this after walking through New York, where it sounded like everyone possessed an iPhone. I ’ve used a whole bunch of Google Trends data to find out just how popular Apple phones are compared to Android across the US.
Apple vs Android throughout US states – grounded on Google Trend data.
Unexpectedly, both California and New York were n’t in the top 2 Apple countries. It turns out that Hawaii are the biggest Apple fanboys. perhaps that’s because they ’ve got so numerous strands to use those high- end phone cameras on.
Connecticut takes alternate place, but only just. New York, Cali, & Vermont come in close third.
Does Advanced Income Mean More iPhones?
Those top Apple countries are known to be relatively rich – especially Hawaii. This got me wondering, does the iPhone fashionability supplement with the average earnings of a state?
Well, I set up that out too.
Below is a graph ranking countries by their average earnings( per person) against their preference for Apple phones.
Comparing chance of iPhone druggies vs state income rankings
Looking at a state’s average income vs the preference for iPhones over Android.
As the orange trendline shows, there’s a veritably clear correlation between income and the chance that someone owns an iPhone.
The graph also shows some intriguing correlations. You can see the huge preference that Hawaii( HI) has despite lower earnings than the top 4 countries. California( CA), Massachusetts( MA), New York( NY), and Connecticut( CT) all enjoy spending their advanced earnings on a flashy phone.
What I love, however, are the outliers. You ’ve got Maine( ME) and Vermont( VT) with a huge iPhone preference despite a lower income. That’s brand passion right there. On the other hand, Washington( WA) Maryland( MD), and New Jersey( NJ) are right over there on earnings but are way more budget reluctant when it comes to their phones.
You also have the lower earning countries of Idaho( ID), Montana( MT), Arkansas( AR), & Mississippi( MS). While they all have analogous income situations, Arizona & Mississippi much prefer iPhones while Montana and Idaho are more likely to conclude for an Android phone.
Tête-à-tête, Alaska was a surprise on state earnings. I imagine these high earnings with a low preference for iPhones are incompletely represented by oil painting and gas workers – who ’ve got no need for Siri when their on hard 12 hour shifts outside!
How Was Data Collected?
Unfortunately, I do n’t have access to a ton of Apples individual deals numbers. rather, I sourced the data for the chart and graph above from Google Trends.
By comparing Google Play vs the AppStore, you can see the spread of preferences per state thanks to Google’s data. Since this data is grounded on a of quests, it’s balanced to show the preference per state – and not by number of people.
