A STUDY IN the UK has found that one in five iPhone users admits that their bank account is always overdrawn.

Users of the Apple iPhone are likely to have lower incomes and be less financially solvent, according to a study by YouGov that has been published in the Daily Mail.

In comparison, users of phones with Google’s Android operating system and Blackberry users manage their money more effectively.

The survey found that 50 per cent of iPhone owners actually earn under £20,000 (€22,600), compared with 38 per cent who own a Blackberry and 27 per cent of Android users, according to Mobile Magazine.

Only 5 per cent of iPhone users earn more than £50,000 (€56,691) compared with 10 per cent of Blackberry users.

The survey of 2,000 people also revealed that Britain’s most popular smartphone was now one with the Android system with 28 per cent of those polled owning such a device compared with 26 per cent who owned an iPhone.
