Android users are switching to the Apple camp in droves, according to the Cupertino, California-based company.

In its financial results for its third 2022 fiscal quarter, which ended in June, Apple reported a quarter record revenue of $83.0 billion or equivalent to a 2-percent annual growth.

Apple CEO Tim Cook attributed the year-on-year increase to switchers, or Android users who abandoned rival Google’s platform for Apple’s own iOS and the iPhone. In a statement during an earnings call, Cook said his company “set a June quarter record for both revenue and switchers to iPhone.”

The company’s chief financial officer Luca Maestri gave a similar statement, claiming a double-digit annual rise in the active install base because of former Android users. No exact figure was revealed.

As to what compelled Android users to make the switch, Cook said customer loyalty and satisfaction along with global penetration of 5G technology were the major factors.

In anticipation of more Android users participating in the exodus, and with the iPhone 14 expected to launch in less than two months, Apple recently uploaded a video to help switchers perform common tasks for moving between platforms as well as to answer the usual questions. Watch it below.
