Regarding the iPhone retention rate question, that’s not even remotely surprising considering it’s an apples to oranges comparison. To stay on the iOS platform, you have no other choice but to buy another iPhone. To upgrade on Android you have a wealth of different hardware to choose from.

A more useful comparison would be OS retention rate.
