If you’ve ever been told that Apple’s iPhone 6s is the best phone you’ve had, you may want to reconsider.
A new study from the University of Michigan has found that while iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users are generally satisfied with their phones, they’re also happier with AppleCare+ and AppleCare+, the company’s premium smartphone plans that offer up to $150 per year in AppleCare coverage.
According to a new study conducted by University of Maryland researchers, AppleCare offers more support and less hassle than the standard AppleCare plans offered by other manufacturers.
The study also found that iPhone 6S users are more satisfied with Apple Care than iPhone 6 users.
The study, published in the Journal of Consumer Research, examined the personal opinions of 1,100 people who had received iPhone 6 or iPhone 6Plus plans from AppleCare between October 2016 and April 2017.
The results revealed that the most frequently cited reason for choosing iPhone 6 is the added value that AppleCare provides compared to the standard iPhone plans offered in other countries.
In addition, Apple Care is rated more highly by iPhone 6 owners, who are significantly more likely to use the service.
The majority of iPhone 6, 6 Plus and iPhone SE users also rate AppleCare as their preferred smartphone insurance.
The iPhone 6 model has also been rated as the best iPhone for medical care, the study found.
While AppleCare’s support is strong, its high prices may be a concern to some people.
According to the study, ApplePay’s payment processing fees are often lower than those of AppleCare, and its policies may be more expensive than those offered by AppleCare+.
It’s unclear if AppleCare and ApplePay are competing in the same market.
AppleInsider reached out to AppleCare for comment, but has not yet received a response.
