  • Apple's Installed iPhone Base Tops 100 Million in the U.S.

    It's a milestone achievement for Apple in the United States.

    According to the latest data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, there are now just over 100 million iPhones in use in the United States today.

    It was four years ago when Apple first reached the 100 million installed base globally. But now their domestic numbers have reached this historic height as well.

    "The installed base grew on average 8% per quarter for the past eight quarters," the CIRP report explains. "In the September 2015 quarter, the installed base grew 4%, compared to 6% in the September 2014 quarter."

    So what does it all mean? Actually, it means the pace of iPhone adoption may be slowing.

    “The data again shows that growth in the installed base of iPhones in the US has slowed,” said Josh Lowitz, Co-Founder of CIRP. “In previous quarters, we saw the installed base grow by as much as 17%, in the December 2013 quarter after the launch of the iPhone 5S and 5C. As the US market matures, Apple has fewer first time smartphone buyers to add to their base, and faces the challenge of attracting loyal Android users.”

    Nonetheless, with iPhone 6s adoption exploding across the global landscape there's very little here for Apple to be concerned about in the big picture.
