OK Cupid, a well-known Internet destination for those seeking love online as well as more questionable assignations, has published statistics indicating iPhone users may be luckier in love than owners of rival phones. OK Cupid surveyed types of devices used to upload more than a half-million images to its website and the preponderance of iPhone photos uploaded by users around age 30 indicated they were by far the most active, with women leading the pack. As Wired notes:
By age 30, the average male iPhone user has had about 10 partners while female iPhone users have had 12. By contrast, BlackBerry users hover around 8 partners and Android users have a mere 6.
Wired also points out that this may be of some comfort to Apple fans in general after the magazine published an article in July that called iPad owners in particular “selfish elites.”
We will probably have to just keep waiting for a survey of just how many iPhone owners were involved in creating a survey that indicates iPhone owners have more fun.
