If you own an iPhone or if you have friends with Apple's mobile internet device/smartphone, then there is a good chance that you know what an 'iBore' is.

Or, horror of horrors, you yourself are one!

Over half of 18-24 year-olds in the UK claim to know an iBore, according to a Five News study of 2,050 adults aged between 18 and 24.

Most of these iBores tend to live in London and the South East, claims the YouGov study for Five News.

What's more, four per cent more men (29%) than women (24%) admitted to knowing an iBore ('self-knowledge?', we idly wonder...).
