Who’s healthier – iPhone or Android users? The results are in

Competition between iPhone and Android users has been raging forever – whether it’s about software, hardware, or app stores. However, this might be the first time someone’s looked at which side of the fence is healthiest.

New information from Eat24, a food delivery app, has shown that Apple’s customer-base make healthier food choices compared to their Android counterparts.

Data was pulled from each version of the app from the last few months, by analyzing filters chosen by users – specifically, the ‘healthy’ filter.

It found that 27% of iPhone users clicked ‘healthy’ before anything else, while only 17% of Android users did this.

Furthermore, iPhone users ordered more vegetable-based dishes that Android users – 35% of orders from an iPhone had a vegetable dish, compared to 28% on Android.

Though the findings note that vegetable dishes can still be unhealthy, Eat24 concludes that the thought behind ordering a vegetable-base dish is still a positive one.

The data-gathering went beyond simple ordering decisions – pickup and delivery figures were studied too, and again iPhone users proved to make more health-conscious decisions – they were twice as likely to order food to pickup themselves.

That’s about it for the serious figures – if you want to check out the full blog post unveiling the findings, you can also learn of Eat24’s opinion on which logo – Apple or Android’s – is healthier, and what it believes iOS actually stands for (incredibly Operational Salad, FYI).
