Bishop Sullivan sophomore Emma Davis has an iPod.
“I have an iPod which is the same as an iPhone. I paid over a hundred dollars for it.,” said Ms. Davis.She has it “to listen to music and do other stuff” including social media sites like Kik, Snapchat, Instagram, and also for music sites like Pandora. She likes her iPod because “it’s sweet and has great quality.”
Both iPhones and iPods can connect to wifi but only iPhones can connect to cellular networks.
“An iPhone can shoot video, take photos, play music, send and receive emails, browse the web, send texts, has GPS navigation, record notes, do mathematical calculations, and receive visual voicemails,” said Ms. Davis.
In 2015, Android had 51% and iPhones had 44% of the US market, according to MacRumors.com. But more people are buying iPhones every year. Well, I heard iPhones are really cool but, then again, I’ve never owned one.
