Less and less Apple users are sticking with iPhones when it comes to replacement and are switching to Android phones, especially Samsung, a new report by BankMyCell has said.

The iPhone trade-in site has been collecting data on the new device people have during the valuation and trade-in of their old iPhone. It essentially lets users sell their used phone and upgrade to a new one.

BankMyCell found that 18.1 per cent of iPhone users were trading in their device for a Samsung device in June, the highest level since it’s been in the study, according to a CNET report on Thursday.
