The iPhone 15 Pro seems to be struggling with a slight drop in public approval, according to recent data, suggesting that while the giant still enjoys the Apple brand customer loyalty, it might not be hitting the innovation mark as it once did.
PerfectRec, a reviews site, found that the iPhone 15 Pro received a five-star rating from 73% of users on Google. At face value, these numbers appear solid – after all, that’s nearly three-quarters of all reviewers. But, if we are to take a deeper look, we’ll find that a significant decline in positive feedback when compared to its predecessors.
The ‘Not-so’ Rise to Power
The iPhone 14 Pro had a favorable rating of 76%, and the iPhone 13 Pro received an even more impressive 83%. This represents a 10% drop over the course of two releases.
While 73% satisfaction is still remarkably high, some issues have been identified with the iPhone 15 Pro that might be influencing its ratings. Overheating problems have been some of the biggest concerns – though iPhone parent has claimed an iOS update addresses this. Other users have noted a screen burn-in problem on the phone’s OLED display.
For a device at its price point, these aren’t minor inconveniences.
That said, the big picture shows that a majority of users still appreciates the iPhone 15 Pro. This takes us to the core matter behind the giant’s power: brand strength and Apple’s customer loyalty. Historically, Apple thrived on a blend of innovative features and unmatched brand loyalty. Yet, it goes without saying that with the latest stats on the iPhone 15 Pro, do we not have the right wonder if Apple is still pushing the boundaries as it did in its golden era or if it’s now leaning more on its loyalcustomer base?
Yet, despite all that, the truth of the matter is that while the Big Tech giant’s climb may appear to be stalling, its driving force of brand loyalty still holds strong. But as discerning customers, it’s essential to ask: Is Apple still leading its own innovation, or is it coasting on its past successes?
Only time – and perhaps the iPhone 16 – will tell.
