New maps showing the locations of iPhone and android phones visually highlight how iPhones are used by rich people, while android phones are used by those who live in poor areas.
MapBox have released a world-wide map online showing that people who live in more wealthy areas tend to use iPhones, while people living in poorer areas use Android. The map tracked more than 230 million tweets, referencing the location of the tweets and the type of device used.
