Women More Likely To Date Men With iPhones (SURVEY)

Posted: Updated:

A series of surveys have cast iPhone users as everything from social butterflies to porn-watching egomaniacs to phone junkies.

The latest claims that male iPhone users are luckier in love, too.

Phone retailer iPhones4u (albeit not the most impartial or well-known of research bodies) surveyed 1,500 women and found that 54 percent of them said they would be more likely to date a man if he has an iPhone. There's been some controversy surrounding the iPhone4u survey, which you can learn more about here.

Thirty-seven percent of respondents said "owning an iPhone makes a man seem more reliable, to which nearly all went on to say that a second date would be likely," TechCrunch writes.

"If he has an iPhone then he's obviously intelligent and well-off," one respondent said.

Lucy, a 23-year-old school teacher, noted "There's just something about a man who's good with computers that makes him more trustworthy." She added, "If he's got the cash for an iPhone then he must be very good at his job, too."

Although the women surveyed presume iPhone-toting males are better off than their BlackBerry, Palm, Nexus One, or Droid-carrying counterparts, the stats do not completely confirm their assumption. Another study concluded that male iPhone users tend to have around "GBP3,750 less disposable income per annum than those who do not own an iPhone."
