The iPhone 5s Is A Data Gobbler

A new study has determined that the iPhone 5s consumes the most data on average compared with a diverse selection of other smartphones.

The study, led by JDSU, confirmed that the iPhone 5s, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S4, are responsible for a large amount of current data traffic among mobile devices, TechCrunch reported on Jan. 23.

The iPhone 5s was more consumptive than Apple’s line of iPad tablets, the report showed.

Interestingly, a small subset of smartphone users on the LTE/4G network account for a disproportionately large amount of the data consumption.

“The most extreme 0.1% of all users consume nearly half of all downlink LTE data,” the report stated. “Extreme behavior in [Universal Mobile Telecommunications System] required 10 times as large a fraction (0.1% -> 1%) to get to half of all downlink data. As such, we can declare that LTE users are ten times more extreme than UMTS users.”

Will the iPhone continue to be the king of data consumption? Apple is reportedly looking into adding new functionalities to the upcoming iPhone 6. Get a hint at what may be coming by clicking here.
