Is expectation building ahead of a new iPhone?

With rumors that a new iPhone is about to hit the streets, we analyzed data from Plume households to chart the latest popularity trends. While Apple continued to dominate the installed base of active smartphones at 69%, actual growth August 2019 through September 2020 was flat. Heading into September, a general slowdown was evident for many iPhone variants active on Plume home networks, however, the larger screen models XR, 11, and 11 Pro Max bucked the trend.
