In addition, the report showed the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were adopted at a faster rate than their predecessors, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. Specifically, at the one year mark for the iPhone 5s, that device was still in second place to the original iPhone 5.

In terms of app usage, larger screen sizes seem to translate into more app launches, with users of both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launching apps more than 15 times per month. This number decreases with each device generation, with the iPhone 5s having 14 app launches per month, for instance, and the iPhone 5 having 12.9 app launches per month. Localytics said this data also likely heavily correlates with the fact that adopters of newer iPhones tend to open apps more often.


If history is any indicator, these data points will change very quickly with the release of the new iPhone models, the deluge of new and upgraded mobile apps, and the growing excitement from consumers and the media. We’ll keep you posted on the developments.
