What Do Apple Fans Do Online When Not Watching The Latest Apple Keynote?
What do Apple fans love to do online when they’re not watching the latest Apple keynote? This is a question I’ve never asked myself, because, well why would I? But source website, The Next Web, may have the answer, according to information obtained from Internet pornography website, Pornhub. Compared with an average day, Pornhub reported a 7% drop in viewing statistics from American IP addresses at 1300 hours Eastern Time yesterday, which coincides with when the Apple iPhone 2017 keynote event kicked off. Around the world, global viewing dropped by 4%.
Did you know that Apple only permit viewers to watch the keynote live if they are using the Apple Safari, Apple TV or Microsoft Edge browser? This makes it easier for Android users to avoid the usual barrage of lies and exaggerated claims in the keynote as well as simplifies how easy it is to tell where the decline of users came from: during the event, traffic from MacOS machines dropped by 8% and from iOS devices, by 12%. And don’t think about this too much, but after the event finished, traffic rebounded to be 4% higher than usual for that time of day.
Pornhub reported something similar for 2016, but for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X announcement, it appears that more Pornhub users abandoned their service to watch the Apple announcement, but right after it ended, went back to the porn site.
I’m especially glad I don’t work an Apple Guru Bar.
