    So what you think iMore friend its really so interested study :-

    The study also found that out of those questioned:
    ● 54% owned a previous version of the iPhone
    ● 37% bought a second iPhone because they were used to the interface.
    ● 28% said it seemed the best phone for them at the time of switching
    ● 25% said they switched because their friends and family had iPhones and they wanted iPhone specific features such as FaceTime
    ● 17% switched to iPhone from BlackBerry
    ● 14% switched to iPhone from Nokia
    ● 9% switched to iPhone from Samsung
    ● 4% switched to iPhone from HTC
    ● 2% switched to iPhone form Sony Ericsson

    The iPhone 5 was the most popular handset in use with 52% of users having one. 29% of users had a 4 or 4S, 10% had an iPhone 5c or 5s, and 9% were still using a 3 or 3GS.

    I don't think it's blind loyalty. They just bought something because they were used to it or they wanted to try something new.

    With things and topics like that I fear we could be standing in the eye of the storm very soon. But I will say this, not everyone I know uses an iPhone out of blind loyalty, and while the studies show that, it is really dependent on context.

    And even if people are buying iPhones for loyalty' sake, who's to blame that? Instead I admire the adoration for Apple's design tenets and commitment to quality.

    So if you stick with a product that works the best for you, it's just blind loyalty.... Ok then, guess I am.

    I totally disagree with the premise. Is it "blind loyalty" to purchase products that perform well, and give you value/experience for the price? I think not. It’s more a matter of buying a quality product.

    Trust me, if Apple ever makes a product that does not satisfy, that does not perform or that returns no value, I will stop buying them. Until then... 

    People analyze this garbage until it's it's worn out. Obviously if apple didn't provide a phone that worked for a majority of the people they wouldn't own one.

    I don't have "blind loyalty". I use Apple products because they work for me.

    i moved over from android to a iphone 4s and so far there is no regrets, ios 7 runs great i dont have to worry about lag and slow down because of the ram like i used to. its a phone i can pick up and it does what i want it to do, thats not blind loyalty to want a product that works its common sense

    I didn't buy an iPhone out of "Blind loyalty". I'd actually been one of those Apple bashers. I'd always loved Android (Still do though). I just really felt like I was depriving myself of an experience. So I was slowly won over when they released the 5c. The pretty blue color made me smile and it still does when I see it. I can't guarantee I'll stay with the ecosystem but it's been fun being in it. 😏

    In other words the OP is pretty much saying it's crazy that the iPhone is the dream device for the younger generation. Also that there are a lot of people who are fans of Apple products. Perhaps indicating they might be a bit too fanatical.*

    *My opinion on interpretation. Could be wrong.

    I think there is a very important word left out of the title of this thread...and that is "Some".

    Sure, there was a study done (one of I'm sure thousands that have been done to try and prove the same thing). There's always going to be blind loyalists...with ANYTHING consumer related. There are blindly loyal Android fans, Windows fans, Honda fans, Taco Bell fans...I mean this isn't something specific to Apple, but Apple is such a high profile target, people want to find some kind of pattern that they can discuss in this nature.

    Looking into our own niche of the internet here at iMore, we have a pretty good % of users that are not blindly loyal to Apple, and wait until they actually touch and try out the new iPhone's (or any product from the company) before making a purchase. I'd like to think that most people do that, but I don't want to be naive in that assumption, so I will simply say this...if a person wants to make a point like this article highlights, they need to make sure they say "Some" owners, because the headline of this thread seems like a representation of all owners, and that is simply untrue.

    I buy phones that fit my needs best at the time I get one.

    For me I like a UI that is simple and not cluttered and doesn't have fancy animations that use a lot of CPU or gpu usage. Also I like OS that are stable during long periods of use. Also I like a phone to have a lot of GPU power since I like playing games a lot on my phone. Also I like a phone to have a lot of performance for apps and games but also can manage resources when on standby or using simple apps like Facebook. Also I like a huge selection of apps to chose from.
    So far the iPhone has fit my needs best. But to be honest the Ubuntu edge phone would of fit my needs the closest.

    So I think these "iPhone users are blind" are just paid articles to get people to switch.

    I believe people should get a phone that suits them best not what is popular or what someone else says to get.

    Interesting read, thanks for sharing! I think every smartphone platform has loyal customers... some blind some not. Being 100% objective is hard!

    Sweeping generalizations made based on the results of a survey with a minuscule sample of 2000 people.
    Polarizing statements with no conceivable basis in fact.

    Yup, smells like click bait to me.

    I don't think you have to do a study in order to know that many iPhone users are completely closed off to ever using any other platform. So are many Android and BlackBerry users. You can just read the many "I wouldn't switch no matter what" or "whatever the next iPhone looks like, I'll buy it" comments on these forums. Everyone has a certain amount of blind loyalty to certain brands. The goal of any good company is to get the customers to stay even when times are tough and Apple is the world leader in that department.
