Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster today released a report about a U.S. teenagers survey “from over over 7,700 teenagers”, showing that 40% of respondents currently own an iPhone “which was only 34% 6 months ago”. It also shows that 44% of the teenagers own a tablet computer, which is 10% more then 6 months ago.
We believe it is a positive sign for the power of the iPhone among younger users that Apple was able to expand its market share with teens despite no new product launches between our Spring and Fall 2012 surveys.
It is interesting to see that 62% of survey respondents stating that they plan to obtain an iPhone as their next phone. From the 44% that own a tablet computer, 72% are using an iPad. 20% of total respondents are planning to obtain an tablet computer in the next six months. Of those, 74% are planning to purchase an iPad. Great news for Apple.
