iPads and physicians - like hands in gloves
May 6, 2011
We continue to hear more and more about how much physicians like the iPad®. Manhattan Research released a study announcing that seventy-five percent of U.S. physicians own some form of Apple device. While this includes any Apple device, the adoption rate for the iPhone® and the iPad have been surging. The iPhone is the number one smartphone platform and the iPad has reached 30 percent of U.S. physicians.
Manhattan Research reported top trends in the study include:
- In 2011, 75% of U.S. physicians own an Apple device such as an iPhone, iPad or iPod.

- 30% of U.S. physician own an iPad and an additional 28% plan to purchase one within the next six months.
