We’ve been keeping a close eye on the social media buzz surrounding the iPhone 5S and iOS 7 release. While the response to both Apple’s new flagship smartphone and updated mobile operating system has been mixed, we were surprised to see spike in Twitter users proclaiming they are “switching to Android” at the same time iOS 7 started rolling out to users.
With over 1,000 Twitter users including the phrase switching to Android in their posts to the popular social network over the last 10 days, could a spike in tweets declaring their switch Android since the widespread release of iOS 7 to Apple customers signal a growing dissatisfaction among long-time iPhone users?
These Twitter users think so:
Finally downloaded new operating system – dog slow for typing & the battery life is crap #applefail thinking if switching to android
