iPhone grows in popularity among teens

Apple’s iPhone continues to grow in popularity with U.S. teenagers, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster’s latest semiannual teen survey, which asked 7,500 teens about their device preferences. 61 percent of teens now own an iPhone, compared to 55 percent from a survey conducted in October 2013 and 40 percent in the fall of 2012.

Get them while they’re young and they will be with you for a long time.

    I distinctly remember some analyst saying a while back that Apple was losing its cachet with teens. Wish I had a link handy for that bit of claim chowder; maybe Gruber will post it.

      That was the sensationalist – I mean journalist – Tom Keene. I get amused by reminding him (via the original piece on Bloomberg) about that observation.

      The joke is on critics of Keene, however. He’s got the platform and he gets paid whether he’s obtuse or on the ball, just so long as it generates attention.
