Apple iOS developer David Smith noticed something that really jumped out at him when he was reviewing his iPhone’s device analytics. “People really, really like the 4.7-inch iPhone,” he writes. “When I look at the iPhone distribution for Pedometer++ the four most popular devices are all that size. Together they account for nearly 50% of all devices I see in use.” The next most popular screen sizes are the 5.5-inch Plus size (19%) and the 5.8-inch X size (12%).
There are two main reasons for why this is the case: people find the 4.7-inch display to be the perfect size, whether that be for one-handed usability or pocketability, and/or the specs and features found in the 4.7-inch iPhone models still perform well to this day, prompting users to hold off on upgrading to a larger model. Whatever the case may be, the numbers show that 4.7-inch iPhones are still very popular in 2019. Are you still using an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display? Which iPhone model is your favorite?
