A recent semi-annual teenager survey by market research firm Piper Jaffray found that 34% of surveyed students now own an iPhone. This is an all time high, and double of what they saw last year. The reason for this, as explained by analyst Gene Munster is that the new low cost offerings by Apple have allowed many teens to get a phone. In even better news for Apple, 40% of the High School Students expressed their intent to buy an iPhone in the next 6 months, which is also at an all time high for the survey.
On a related note, 34% of students also said they had tablets. 70% of those are iPads. 19% of them said they would buy a tablet within 6 months, and 80% of those said it would be an iPad. Given most of our readers are in High School, let us know. Did you get an iPhone in the last year? Are you thinking about getting one, or an iPad?
