In fact according to data from the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, it appears that loyalty rates to both iOS and Android are at an all time high. According to their data, Android loyalty is at around 92% and has marginally beat out Apple who is sitting at around 91%. CIRP also points at how this increased loyalty could also indicate longer upgrade cycles which could explain why devices like the iPhone aren’t selling as well anymore as more customers are holding onto their phones longer.

However given that changing your DNS isn’t exactly something that everyone knows how to do, the app simplifies the entire process by basically turning it into a toggle where you can choose to turn it on or off.
