The UK’s Most Googled Tech Items: PS5 is the Most Popular Tech Gift

New research has found the UK’s most popular tech items with the PlayStation 5 coming out on top.

PlayStation 5 is the most searched item every month, receiving 1,040,000 searches a month on average. With sales topping 2 million in the UK this year, the popularity of the Sony console means that coming up to Easter stock is still scarce in many high-street retailers.

The PS5 is a high-end console with powerful hardware that allows for smooth gameplay, high-quality graphics, and fast loading times. The PS5 has built-in social features that allow players to easily connect with friends and share gameplay experiences.

Coming in second place is the iPhone 13, which receives roughly 865,000 searches a month. Despite being more than a year old and its successor, the iPhone 14, being released in mid-2022, the iPhone 13 remains incredibly popular based on Google searches.

iPhones are not only visually appealing, but they are also highly functional. They can perform a wide range of tasks, such as making phone calls, sending messages, browsing the internet, and taking high-quality photos and videos.

Giving an iPhone as a gift can show that you care about the recipient and want to give them something special and high-quality.

The Nintendo Switch takes third place on the list, with roughly 694,000 searches a month on average in 2022. In November, sales for the handheld console increased by 175% month-on-month, accompanying the latest generation of Pokemon launching with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

The Xbox Series X comes in fourth place on the list, with an average monthly search volume of 664,000. It was released in the same generation and at a similar time as the PS5, but Microsoft’s console trails behind Sony regarding searches.

Rounding out the top five is the Apple Watch, which comes in with 612,000 searches a month. It’s another addition to Apple’s technology ecosystem, with the eighth Generation Watch and the Apple Watch Ultra both being released this year.
