    Default Survey finds 21% of iOS users wouldn't change platforms for any price.



    For those of you wondering if Apple still has a strong cult following, here you go: a new survey from Goldman Sachs finds that 21% of iOS users wouldnt switch to another platform, for any price.

    The securities firm recently surveyed over 1000 smartphone users, in an effort to better understand the costs that consumers face when switching ecosystems. And this is what they found

    Out of the 1000+ participants, a whopping 62% of iOS users said that it was highly likely that their next smartphone or tablet purchase would be from Apple. And that number soared to 75% for users who currently own two or more Apple products.



    And apparently, price doesnt have anything to do with their brand loyalty. When asked how much of a discount it would take for them to switch to another platform, 23% of those polled said that the cost reduction would have to be between 21% and 30%. And an astounding 21% said that no discount would make it worthwhile for them to switch.

    Obviously, this is just a small poll. But these numbers are probably fairly indicative of the actual market. And it says a lot about Apple, as a brand, that 1/5th of its users would switch to Android, Windows 8, etc., even if you gave them free devices.

    Are these just fanboys here? Or does Apple still offer the best all-around mobile platform?

    I don't blame them.

    (Talking of an average person that has no idea about jailbreaking/rooting/cracked apps)
    Say for example they purchased an expensive app on their iPhone and they switch to Android/Windows they would have to buy the app again to get it. Had they purchased another iDevice they would've been able to get that app on their new phone for free.

    Also, I happen to agree with the notion that iOS is more 'family friendly' as it is easier for one to use and understand and the AppStore restricts apps/games that are immoral/wrong (porn,sex,drugs)
