Launch Day Survey Says!: “We Want Our iPhone 6 Plus!”

Launch Day Survey Says!: “We Want Our iPhone 6 Plus!”

Apple fans are lining up all around the United States and other countries today, in hopes of grabbing a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Wells Fargo Analyst Maynard Um took the time to do some surveys of those standing in line outside Apple Stores in New York City Friday morning, and 67% of those surveyed were hoping against hope to get their paws on an iPhone 6 Plus in either the 64GB or 128GB capacities.

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Um, via The Mac Observer:

We conducted our annual survey of early iPhone buyers at locations in New York. Most notable was shift to 64GB and 128GB models versus prior launch surveys and greater popularity of 6 Plus. Of those surveyed, 67 percent intended to buy the 6 Plus versus 33 percent the 6. Additionally, 33 percent planned to purchase the 128GB versus the last two launches for the highest-end model of 22 percent and 17 percent.

Hey, if you’re gonna go big, GO BIG!

As a comparison, during┬áthe iPhone 5s launch, 33% wanted the 32GB model and 22% wanted the 64GB version. Those two levels equaled the mid and top storage levels for last year’s iPhone flagship model.

As far as carriers go, 39% of those surveyed were on AT&T, 16% on Verizon, 10% used T-Mobile, and a mere 4% were Sprint customers.

Um says that the long lines, along with last Friday’s preorder frenzy – and with more customers looking to grab both a larger sized, and larger capacity handset – will all combine to give Apple’s bottom line a boost, with a┬átarget price range between $89 and $99 USD for Apple’s stock.
