This year, search engine giant Google has revealed what people across the globe are searching on the internet. Google, in its yearly “Year in Search” blog, has picked two words as the most searched words for 2017: iPhone 8 and iPhone X, CNET reported on Thursday.
Both iPhone 8 and iPhone X topped the most trending search words for this year, according to Google. Based on the global search list, iPhone claimed the top spot among the search terms. iPhone 8 ranked no. 2 while iPhone X ranked no. 3, respectively.
Why iPhone 8, iPhone X?
The inclusion of iPhone 8 and iPhone X in Google’s global search list suggest that 2017 is certainly a big year for Apple Inc. So when Google released the results, it cannot be denied that 2017 is indeed a year for Apple’s smartphones.
The Cupertino-based company has recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary this 2017. To make the celebration worth remembering by the Apple users globally, Apple released the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus including the popular iPhone X. Hence, speculations about Apple’s smartphones were circulating year-round in anticipation of the company’s new flagship phones.
However, the rumors did not directly refer to the iPhone X as the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. The iPhone X was not even close to being rumor until such time that Apple finally announced that it would launch iPhone X. This could be the best reason why iPhone 8 has ranked higher compared to iPhone X.
Meanwhile, Google has also used separated terms into categories. This includes Elections, Memes, and Actors. On the consumer tech category, the most searched words are Nintendo Switch (2), Samsung Galaxy (40, Xbox One (5) and the iPhones ranked 1 and 2 respectively.
