San Francisco: Apple iPhone installed base in the US has seen a downward trend for quite some time now and its estimated base saw a dismal growth in the first calendar quarter of 2019, new data Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) has said.
The quarter ending March 2019 recorded the US iPhone use a base at 193 million units, compared to 189 million units at the end of the December quarter, which translates into just 2 percent growth quarter-over-quarter (QoQ).
“The US installed base of iPhones continues to plateau. Relative to the most recent quarters, and especially to the past two or three years, slowing unit sales and longer ownership periods mean that the growth in the number of US iPhones has flattened considerably,” Josh Lowitz, CIRP Partner, and Co-Founder, said in a statement.
