A study has revealed why Apple users do not want to switch to the iPhone 13 series.
The iPhone 13 series, introduced by Apple at the California Streaming event held on September 14, went on sale. ProMotion technology, available only in Pro models, brought 120Hz refresh rate support to smartphones. The new iPhones have attracted attention with their storage space as well as their technical features. Apple broke new ground with the 1TB memory option.
The iPhone 13 series consists of four models, just like its predecessor. In addition to the mini and flat model, Pro and Pro Max versions are offered to users. So, is a person who already owns an iPhone considering switching to the new series? SellCell, which conducted a research involving more than 5000 users aged 18 and over, shared the data it obtained.
