Percentage of iPhone teens rises to 87

Piper Sandler, an investment firm, has released the results of an investigation into iPhone ownership among teens.


The company’s biennial teen survey shows that Apple devices continue to be immensely popular with American teens. The survey shows that about 87 percent of American teens own an iPhone, and 88 percent of them expect their next smartphone model to be an iPhone.

Teen iPhone ownership has increased significantly over a 10-year period. In 2012, only 40 percent of American teens owned an iPhone. The research suggests that Apple is on the right track when it comes to revamping the product cycle, and that its services will continue to be in high demand among demographics.

As for the Apple Watch, its ownership is less impressive. Only 31 percent of American teens own an Apple Watch. However, it is the most popular smartwatch model among teenagers. 36.8 percent of the population admit to owning one, meaning only 5.8 percent don’t own a non-Apple smartwatch.
