Helping demonstrate how you can create “proof” for anything by taking two studies and highlighting the differences or similarities between them, Phandroid has humorously decided to “prove” that iPhone users are smarter than people who use other mobile operating systems bu comparing two loosely-related studies to each other.
Welp, that does it. We’re all dumb. Well, that’s according to two loosely-related studies, anyway. Chitika recently released their report of mobile operating system usage by state for the United States. On its own it doesn’t say much — iPhone is used more in some area than others. You can checkout the chart below to see where it’s most popular (seems to be the bee’s knees out on the east coast). But the side story here is that the result of this study correlates to another study that measured levels of education by state. Comparing the two side-by-side shows that places with the highest levels of education are also the places where iPhones are used the most.
