- Tim Cook said that the iPhone is seeing strong growth.
- He specifically said that the company is seeing "strong double digit" growth from upgraders and switchers.
It looks like Apple is getting more customers to switch over from Android.
As reported by CNBC, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke with Steve Kovach about the company's financial performance in the second quarter of 2022. According to Apple, the iPhone business grew over five percent during Q2 2022, a strong indicator that the iPhone 13 lineup continues to perform well.
Cook said that not only was the iPhone performing well but that it was seeing "strong double digit" growth for those upgrading their iPhone as well as those switching from Android.
Apple reported another record quarter, posting $97.3 billion in revenue in Q2 2022, a nine percent increase and a revenue record for its March quarter.
Bottom line: The iPhone 13 is the best iPhone for most people, with impressive new cameras and notable improvements to battery life. Without all the bells and whistles of the Pro line, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are still powerhouses that'll keep owners happy for years to come.

So was this double digit growth in upgraders and double digit growth in switchers ..or.. double digit growth in upgraders and switchers? If the latter, that's nice. People who have iPhones are upgrading to iPhones and people who are switching to iPhone are coming from the only other significant option. Only takes one switcher to make that statement valid. Note that some people switching from Android to iPhone, doesn't preclude people switching from iPhone to Android, but that's for Android Central to report.
