San Francisco: Many iPhone users want the upcoming iPhone model to be named ‘iPhone 2021’ instead of ‘iPhone 13‘, a survey has revealed.
According to the survey, carried out by SellCell, a total of 74 per cent of respondents said they hoped “iPhone 13” will be named something else.
The respondents also voted for the best potential name, with “iPhone (2021)” taking the top spot with 38 per cent of the vote, AppleInsider reported on Monday.
Around 26 per cent thought that the “iPhone 13” was the best name and only 13 per cent said that they would like to see the devices called the “iPhone 12S”.
Only about 18 per cent of respondents have superstitions about the number 13, however. That represents one in five Apple users, the report said.
Name aside, most Apple users appear ready to wait for the next iPhone to debut, said the survey, which included over 3,000 iPhone and iPad users aged 18 years and older in the US.
According to the survey, conducted between June 10 and June 15, 64 per cent said they would skip purchasing an iPhone now to wait for new models to debut in the fall.
SellCell also surveyed Apple users about the next slate of software updates, including iOS 15. More than half, about 52 per cent, said they were “slightly” or “not at all” excited about the new features in iOS 15.
As far as the most popular new additions, 23 per cent named the upgraded Wallet app as their favorite, about 17 per cent said advanced Spotlight search was their top pick and 14.2 per cent said the new Find My feature that tracks off or wiped devices was their most liked feature.
About 32 per cent of respondents said they wished iOS 15 introduced interactive widgets, while 21 per cent said an always-on display feature was their top missing addition.
Professional apps for iPadOS are at the top of the wishlist for 14.9 per cent of those surveyed.
