44% of iPhone users intend to upgrade to the iPhone 13, and 120Hz displays are the most anticipated new feature, according to a new SellCell survey.
Of this number of respondents intending to upgrade to the iPhone 13, 38.2% intend to purchase a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 30.8% – a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max and 24% – a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro.
It is noteworthy that only 7% of respondents are interested in the iPhone 13 mini. Apple is expected to discontinue the 5.4-inch mini model next year due to low sales.
Rumor has it that 22% of respondents most want a 120Hz high refresh rate display on the iPhone 13 lineup. 18.2% of respondents hope for Touch ID under the display, but may be disappointed as, according to the latest data, this feature will appear in new iPhone models no earlier than 2023. 16% are expecting an “always-on” display, and 10.9% are excited about the prospect of a smaller notch.
The responses also showed that buyers were least looking forward to new colors, faster processor, reverse wireless charging and Wi-Fi 6E – these potential features were preferred by less than 5% of those surveyed.
Several other upcoming Apple products, such as the Apple Watch Series 7 and third-generation AirPods, did not generate much interest from respondents. 72.7% of respondents said they were not interested in buying an Apple Watch Series 7, and 87.1% of respondents said they were not interested in buying third-generation AirPods.
Compared to the high level of interest in upgrading to the iPhone 13, the Apple Watch Series 7 and third-generation AirPods seem significantly less attractive to potential buyers.
SellCell’s findings were based on a survey of more than 3,000 iPhone owners aged 18 and older who lived in the United States between July 28 and August 6.
