The Truth Behind iPhone's High Failure Rate
Apple said that its iOS is considered to be the most advanced mobile operating system in the world. However, a new study proves otherwise. The new data from the recent study shows that the main reason why Android phones were more saleable last year is due to the performance issues of iPhones.
High Failure Rate Plagues iPhones
According to Cult of Mac, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are the worst-performing Apple phones to date. Android also had the same issues concerning its phones in the past years. But it managed to overcome those problems.
Now, it's not anymore the case for these Android-powered phones. The new study is reported by Blancco, a renowned security firm that is recommended and certified by 18 international governing bodies.
The high failure rate that Blancco's reports point out, is due to the hardware and software issues from third-party apps. Android clearly did their best efforts in tackling the issue as its failure rate dropped from 85 percent by the end of 2015, to only 44 percent in the first months of 2016. That is more than a 50 percent decrease in failure rate issues.
On the other hand, the iOS failure rate during Q4 2015 was only 15 percent. But one year after, in Q4 2016, the stats skyrocketed to a whopping 62 percent.
Reports suggest that iPhones are very prone from crashing apps and overheating issues to various headphone malfunctions. Meanwhile, camera, USB ports, and signal problems were the main problems in Android phones.
It's All About The Looks
Fortunately, Android phone manufacturers tackled this issue quickly and managed to successfully lower down the failure rate percentage. According to BGR, despite the serious issue that iPhones are facing, iPhone users are still remaining very loyal to the brand.
This is due to the superior aesthetic appeal and overall brand image that Apple has. Obviously, the tech aspects of phones are not that much of an issue for most phone owners.
