Spike in Twitter Users “Switching To Android” as iOS 7 is Released

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?

    I am one who switched to a galaxy s4 instead of going from iphone 4s to 5s. So far very happy i did. Seems more of my friends are android now too.

    My first smartphone was an iPhone 4 two years ago and I just purchased my first Android phone after iOS7 came out. I know it runs much better on the 5 and up but I’m still not a fan of the features and overall appearance. I had no reason to buy an iPhone 5 except the convenience of switching which I decided wasn’t worth it.
