Apple Inc recently launched its next-generation smartphone, the iPhone 13 series comprising four models, at its virtual tech event in California. This report delves into changing consumer opinions and trends around iPhone launches and the brand loyalty debate.

Apple’s new iPhone 13 lineup revealed at its annual September event comes with several minor upgrades but no major surprises. With larger storage, a bigger battery and innovative camera features, the new phones are priced the same as last year’s iPhone 12. Still, it remains to be seen if this will be enough incentive for iPhone users to upgrade to the newest version. With people holding on to their phones for a longer period, making a switch to other cheaper brands, and considering the impact of the pandemic, how will the move play out for Apple this year? Piplsay polled 30,580 Americans and 9,200 Britons to get some insights. Here is a summary of what we found:
