A new report from insurers sheds light on the facts

iPhones are some of the most popular handsets on the face of the planet. Unfortunately, many of the people who purchase them worry that they are going to be broken easily and have to be replaced. If a new report from one of the major insurers for devices can be believed, there are less reasons to worry than you might think. ProtectCell insures millions of phones, but iPhones are one of the major players in this market. The most

recent report that they have released details the fact that, compared to other mobile handsets the iPhone is 46 percent less likely to need to be replaced. Smaller repairs happen 11 percent less commonly than with other brands of phones.

What stands out in the report as well is the fact that the iPhones are much more likely to be stolen than any other phone on the market. According to the report, they are 65 percent more likely to be reported stolen and have to be replaced. The saving grace for iPhone owners, however, is the fact that Apple has included a lot of different features that make it easy to recover a phone if it is stolen.

 

iPhones will continue to be popular, regardless of this information, though. Fortunately, it does mean that there are less reasons to worry than many people might think when they are debating buying an iPhone.
