» ‘New iPhone SE is successful in its intended role, says CIRP’

Ben Lovejoy at 9to5Mac on a report that shows the iPhone 9 sold well this past quarter:

The data showed that some 73% of those buying an iPhone SE were upgrading from a model more than four years old.

The original SE was more than four years old. I know this because that’s what I had before I bought this year’s SE. I wonder how much of this was “people who hold on to their phones for a long time” and how much was “people who just wanted a smaller damn phone with up-to-date components”.
