iPhone owners may typically be perceived as well-off, but that isn't necessarily the case, according to a recent poll.
As reported by the Daily Mail, a YouGov survey discovered that one in five iPhone owners are actually overdrawn.
This is apparently double the national average. And compared to owners of BlackBerry and Android-based handsets, only half of whom will even admit to ever having gone into the red, iPhone owners look positively like paupers.
Ten percent of BlackBerry users earned £50,000 or more and seven percent of Android users can also claim to be in this salary bracket. However, only five percent of iPhone owners earn £50,000 or more.
Nearly 50 percent of iPhone owners earn under £20,000, compared with 38 per cent who own a BlackBerry and 27 per cent of Android users.
Of the 2,000 people questioned just 14 percent used a BlackBerry handset, with iPhone owners accounting for 26 percent and owners of Android-based handsets 28 percent.
As for us at Macworld, none of us would claim to be millionaires, obviously - however, surveys like this are rarely worth paying much heed to. Remember the 'iPhone owners are more attractive to the opposite sex' fiasco?
And as for the Daily Mail - well, let's just say it rarely gets it right where Apple is concerned.
