Lots of people want an older iPhone than a newer Android

Previous-gen Apple iPad, iPhone 3GS often outsell new Android devices

Older Apple iOS products sold at a discounted price, like the iPhone 3GS and first-generation iPad, are often more popular than newer devices running the Google Android operating system, a new report claims.


This is smart deal – sell older technology at an entry price to get people hooked. I’m not sure anyone else could sell almost 2 year old devices at the levels that Apple does. But, because of their ecosystem, these devices are still incredibly useful. Would a 2 year old Samsung phone still be driving sales?

Apple should consider always having a low tier piece of hardware that is based on previous generation specs. They can still make money and introduce more people to the iOS ecosystem.
