40% of US iPhone Owners Have Upgraded to an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus [Chart]

Lowitz does note that Apple could face some challenges in the coming quarters with iPhone sales in the US. “There are still 8 million iPhone 4S phones, dating back to 2011, in use,” continued Lowitz. “While they are ripe for upgrade, many of these consumers have owned their iPhone 4S for only a fraction of its three and a half years on the market. The size of this upgrade cohort, relative to the number of new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units sold, suggests that the coming quarters may prove challenging for Apple in the US.”CIRP estimated the number and model of iPhones in each quarter by analyzing data on iPhone buyers, their model selection, and their prior phones.
