Parents, this really shouldn’t be a shock – your kids want iOS devices. According to a newly released survey from Nielsen, almost half (48 percent) of kids aged 6-12 in the United States are interested in getting a full-sized iPad in the next six months. That’s up from 44 percent of kids last year. After the new Nintendo Wii U, desired by 39 percent of the surveyed kids, the next three spots belong to Apple products. Thirty-six percent of the kids want either an iPod touch or an iPad mini. And 33 percent want an iPhone. And with buyers 13 and older, the survey results looked somewhat similar. Twenty-one percent are interested in buying an iPad in the next six months. The iPhone is desired by 14 percent of the consumers, while the iPad mini tops the list at 11 percent.
