    I heard quite often, people getting iPhones to have an iPhone, literally. For the “social status”.

    What is/are your reason(s)?

    We chose Apple for it’s reliability, and for it’s ecosystem! The fact that Apple releases regular updates is another reason.

    Because iPhones just work! Because they are wonderfully designed and beautifully made! And they are not google!

    It was my first smartphone. My cousin had an iPhone 4, and told me it was more user friendly than Android. So I got me an 8 gb iPhone 4. That was 5 years ago and it's been all iPhones since.

    Got bored with Android and figured I’d try something different. Then got so wrapped into the ecosystem that I don’t want to leave now.

    I like both Android and iOS. However Apple supports their devices FAR longer than the Android OEMs, with the exception of Googles devices.

    Short answer: because it’s by far the best smartphone on the market.
    More elaborated answer: because I’m deeply into the Apple ecosystem , where I invested money and time, and the iPhone is just the center of that ecosystem.

    Had RIM maintained its operating system, I would have given blackberry another try, but when they started using the Android OS, I didn’t view it as a blackberry device anymore.

    I have an iPhone because even though I prefer Android, I like to see what each OS has to offer. Too bad windows phone didn't quite pan out or I would still have a windows phone as well. When and if Google decides to do another Google phone with Samsung(Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition]. I would probably abandon IOS altogether. Samsung owns the hardware department, it's the software updates that's their problem.

    All of my Android devices were Nexus devices. I loved the custom roms but I got tired of all the tweaking and tinkering just to keep them running and the reboots got to be too many per day. iOS just plain works.

    I have one because when the SE came out, it was the only compact phone of it's kind in general. It was generally the best out there.

    And yes, I tried Android. Sadly.

    Then got so wrapped into the ecosystem that I CANNOT leave now, LOL

    I have been a mobile device freak ever since Apple "Newton" era (it was actually well made at the time, although bulky and heavy). Since then I was using Palm Pilot and series of others, always wishing that Apple coming up with a real stuff, which came very late. But I have been buying every iteration of the iPhone since then (except X. I am on 8 now). Being such a gadget freak that I am, I flirted with Samsung Galaxy some 7 years or so ago "for 3 days", and kicked it out as if it was a plague. Then, when I was replacing my iPhone, I used a Blackberry Bold 9780 as a stopgap and was fascinated by it. So, much so that I added a new line for it (I never parted my iPhone). It lasted about a year or so, but when Blackberry abruptly abandoned the legacy device and came up with the stupid OS10 with the iPhone look-a-like, I was so disappointed. They lost the mind, and I barked constantly on Crackberry forum, thus accumulated some 1000 posts quickly there. All along, I was an iPhone user, because of all the reasons folks stated above. Plus, I've been immersed in the Apple ecosystem too deeply, changing anything does not make sense to me at all, and I absolutely do not feel like experimenting any other platform at all. Ultimately, iPhone just works. Then again, recent Apple may have lost its past mojo, which irritates me sometimes :-)

    Google is the reason I switched to iPhone. No other reason. I'll never go back to an Android, regardless of whether or not one comes out that's better than an iPhone.

    I get a choice of phones through work. Since I've been using Nexus/Pixel phones as my personal device the last few years, I ask for iPhones so that I can experience the best of both worlds.
