One in five iOS users told a survey they hope Apple won't be calling its next model the unlucky iPhone 13.
From AppleInsider's "Nearly 75% of Apple users don't want an 'iPhone 13,'" more than half not excited about iOS 15" posted Monday:
A total of 74% of respondents in the survey, which was carried out by SellCell, said they hoped "iPhone 13" will be named something else. The respondents also voted for the best potential name, with "iPhone (2021)" taking the top spot with 38% of the vote. Only about 18% of respondents actually have superstitions about the number 13, however. That represents one in five Apple users.
Name aside, most Apple users appear ready to wait for the next iPhone to debut. According to the survey, 64% said they'd skip purchasing an iPhone now to wait for new models to debut in the fall...
SellCell surveyed more than 3,000 iPhone and iPad users aged 18 years and older in the U.S. The survey was conducted between June 10 and June 15, 2021.
My take: What, Apple should go straight to 14, like a hotel elevator?
