Users would keep their iPhone for 4 years

It is the analyst Toni Sacconaghi who publishes his report on the iPhone and the duration of renewal of the device, suggesting that the latter would reach four years.

This increase in the period would be due to the abolition of the 24 months of engagement with most telephone operators.
