Apple is constantly telling us that Android users have been moving to iOS. Google continually tells us that iPhone owners are quite actively moving to Android. Of course, companies have a certain information, based on which such statements are made. In this article we will demonstrate a completely unscientific approach and draw conclusions built on conjecture.
so, there is a Move to iOS app. This application Apple has published a couple of years ago in the Google Play store. It can set only users of devices running Android. The Move to iOS app allows you to quickly transfer contacts, photos and other data from a device running Android on a device running iOS. In other words, it is intended for those who decided to switch to iPhone.
so, suppose, that all who have installed this app, did it in order to change your Android smartphone to your iPhone. According to the Google Play store for October 2015, the number of installations of apps Move to iOS ranges from 1 million to 5 million units. And now we take the latest statistics. The application was installed from 10 million to 50 million times. In other words, at least 10 million Android users switched to iOS over the past two years.
You may have noticed that Google Play is not the most accurate data. We can also assume that the application has been installed not only to change the device, although it is difficult to imagine what else to install it. We can also assume that not all Android users that switched to iPhone, I used this app. Anyway, let’s assume that he had gained at least 10 million defectors.
