iPhone 6s Tops Google's 2015 'Year in Search' List in Consumer Tech

Google today released its annual "Year in Search" results, highlighting popular and trending searches in 2015. Apple-related search terms continued to rank highly in the consumer tech category, with iPhone 6s taking the top spot and Samsung Galaxy S6, Apple Watch, iPad Pro and LG G4 rounding off the top five globally.


Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy J5, HTC's One M9, Huawei's Nexus 6P and Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 were also among the top ten Google searches in the consumer tech category this year. No technology-related terms made it into Google's top ten searches overall in 2015.


In Google's 2014 Year in Search, a number of Apple-related search terms similarly ranked highly among the most trending searches in the Consumer Electronics category, with "iPhone 6" taking #1, "Apple Watch" taking #8, and "iPad Air" taking #10. Flappy Bird also ranked #6 in Google's top 10 overall trending searches in 2014.

Well that settles it. Apple is officially doomed. /s
Am I the only one who finds this back and forth of people hating on Apple and the ones defending it with their own form of sarcasm totally annoying?

Yes, I get it that I am complaining about people who are complaining about the people who were complaining.

Nice to see 3 Apple products in the top 5. That said, all 3 are mobile devices. Back when Jobs returned I don't think I would have seen this coming as it was all about desktops and laptops back then and "cleaning house". My how things have changed since 2007.
