Consumer Intelligence Research Partners released the report of the new survey on the phone use in the US. The report shows that the launch of the latest iPhone5s and 5c caused more previous Android users to convert to iPod than the last years’ iPhone5 release.

The CIRP’s survey graph shows that in September last year, about 16 percents of Android users switched to Apple iPhone. In September this year, after Apple launched iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, about 21 percents of previous users of Android users switched to one of Apple’s new iPhones.

CIRP co-founder Mike Levin explains that it is customary for Apple to attract the users of other smart phone models during the launch of its new models and that the majority of its new customers come from the previous users of Android and similar systems. This year, it appears that there is a significant increase in the number of new customers who already had an iPhone, but an older model. Levine explains that one possible reason is that this year there are fewer customers who do not already have some kind of smart phone.
