Surprisingly, a lot of customers have indicated that they are still using old iPhone models, from iPhone 5 to 8. More surprising was the fact that many people would like to upgrade their phones and get an iPhone 8, instead of Apple’s latest model smartphones, such as the iPhone X or the 11.

This survey showed us that many people prefer the design of the older phones to new ones. Besides, people do not want to spend thousands of dollars on a phone with features they will never use and a design they don’t like. Which is why they are still sticking with the older model iPhones, as they are much more compact, easy to handle and affordable.
