Girls want iPhones, Boys want PS4 this holiday A survey into what 12-17 year olds want this holiday has found Apple's iPhone and iPad are popular, but boys covet the next generation PlayStation 4.
The survey was performed on behalf of Ebates, a cash-back shopping site. It found that Apple's iPhone is the most wanted product this year among all kids aged 12-17. Over 32 percent of overall respondents wanted the Apple smartphone while just 12 percent wanted a device made by Samsung.

Girls pushed the iPhone into the top spot though, since 41 percent of them wanted an iPhone. Breaking it down by gender though shows that boys prefer Sony's next generation PlayStation 4 (PS4) console this holiday season.

As for parents of teens who took part, over 54 percent identified an Apple product as being their intended purchase for their kids during the holidays.

I don't feel disappointed for them kids. When cell phones first came out, I was graduating from high school. My parents told me I had to buy my own. Which case I did.

If they want one, they can save up their money and get their own and pay for their own plans.

This will teach them what it feels like to pay bills and know what conservation means.
