Do you own a particular type of phone based on how smart you are? According to a new study you do.

Online advertising network Chitika found that states with more college graduates also tend to have higher iPhone sales.

Alaska (66%), Montana (60), and Vermont (59) have the largest percentage of iPhone users. Those states also have the highest number of college graduates. Meanwhile New Mexico (40%), Iowa (42), and Delaware(42) have the lowest share of iPhone sales per capita and a low number of college graduates.

Here is the map of the findings (state by state breakdown is below):

Chitika also found that an area with high iPhone sales also normally has a bigger collection of wealth than those that do not.

The company behind the study does admit that its results “are not comprehensive” – due to focusing on states and not cities or neighborhoods. But hey, it gives iPhone owners a chance to talk shit for a while…so there is that.
