A new study conducted by online dating service OkCupid.com has revealed iPhone users have sex with twice the number of partners their Android-using counterparts have.

By the age of 30, men with an iPhone have had around 10 different partners. Their BlackBerry counterparts average around 8.1 partners.

Men with an Android-powered smartphone might just about be ready to trade in their device - with an average of only 6 partners by the time they are 30.

The figures were even higher for women in their 30s with an iPhone in their purse. On average a female iPhone user in her 30s will have had 12.3 partners.

Females with a predisposition for RIM's BlackBerry average 8.8 partners while females who like their smartphone operating system "open" are a lot less open in bed, racking up an average of 6.1 partners by the time they hit 30.

"Finally, statistical proof that iPhone users aren't just getting f#*ed by Apple," OkCupid's Christian Rudder facetiously declared in an August 10 blog post announcing the results of the survey.

The data was derived from OkCupid's "Don't Be Ugly By Accident!" survey. The survey also investigated the factors that resulted in a great photo by aggregating around 11.4 million opinions on the subject.

Additional results from the survey suggested that taking a photo with a flash adds around 7 years to a person's age, the best time of day to take attractive photos is either late at night or late in the afternoon, and making sure "the subject is in crisp focus while the rest of the photo is blurry" will result in a much more attractive image.

"In conclusion, the data strongly suggest that if you're single, you (or someone you know) should learn a little bit about photography. Technique can make or break your photograph, and the right decisions can get you more dates," explained Rudder.

"It's actually not that hard. Use a decent camera. Go easy on the flash. Own the foreground. Take your picture in the afternoon. Then visit the nearest Apple store."
