Senior men spend more on Apple products than any other demographic

NEW YORK — Thank you, grandpa Joe. You’re Apple’s best customer — in terms of how much you spend.

Men aged 65 and older spent more on Apple devices than any other demographic group in the United States last year, according to Slice Intelligence, which tracks online shopping data.

That group, which made up 27% of all Apple customers, spent $976 online on average per person on iGadgets.

They outspent the young female demographic by more than $400. (Women 18 to 24 spent the least out of all the age groups.)

“It’s a great feat that [Apple] is appealing across the board,” said Jaimee Minney head of marketing at Slice,

Minney says that the trend is an indication that Apple products are “getting in the hands of people on the late side of the adoption curve,” while still remaining very popular with their core customer base — younger, tech enthusiasts.

There are a few theories about why this is happening.

“Older people might be new to Apple,” Minney said. “They haven’t bought as much stuff.”

Another possible reason: Older customers are buying Apple products to give as gifts.

Here’s who’s buying what at Apple, according to Slice:

— A higher percentage of customers who buy the iPhone, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, and Apple TV are between the ages of 25 and 34.

— Seniors 65 and older, and people between 35 and 44, are the biggest of iPad customers.

— And those who are 35 to 44 made up the highest percentage of Apple Watch sales.

— The largest percentage of Apple Music customers are 25- to 34-years-old.

— Households with an income level between $35,000 and $50,000 spent the least.

— But, amazingly, households with an income level under $15,000 spent about as much as households with an income level between $125,000 and $150,000.
