iPhone Loyalty: A new report claims that iPhone loyalty is down in 2019, AppleInsider notes. The report includes data from 38,000 people that have traded in an iPhone since October 2018. It finds that only 73% of those people went with a newer version of the iPhone when trading in. This is a drop from the 88% retention rate in 2018. It’s worth noting that this data doesn’t take into account for iPhone owners that are part of AAPL’s upgrade program.
