ChangeWave Research, a firm that frequently conducts surveys on consumer spending, has found that problems related to Apple’s new Maps app and the new Lightning port haven’t had no impact on iPhone 5 demand.

In a survey of 4,300 customers, 90 % of iPhone 5 owners claimed they “haven’t experienced any problem” with Apple’s Maps app.

Only 3% of iPhone 5 users called the Maps application a very big problem.

One in three people said they’re likely to buy the new iPhone, with 20 % saying they were “very likely” and 13 % “somewhat likely.”

As for the new Lightning connector, 31 % said the accessory was “somewhat of a problem.”

6 % called the different connector a “very big problem,” and only 26 % said it was “no problem at all.”

“Despite the media attention surrounding both the Apple Maps issues and the Apple Lightning port issue, neither had had an impact on the massive numbers of buyers queuing up to buy the iPhone 5,” ChangeWave’s VP of Research, Dr. Paul Carton, said in a statement.

“Rather, the survey results both show both issues hardly rank as bumps in the road.”

The survey also showed that 61 % of those interviewed said that they had no need to switch to a new phone because their current device was sufficient.
