The purpose of this paper is to exhibit a quantitative stability result for the class of Möbius transformations of 𝕊n1 when n 3. The main estimate is of local nature and asserts that for a Lipschitz map that is apriori close to a Möbius transformation, an average conformal-isoperimetric type of deficit controls the deviation (in an average sense) of the map in question from a particular Möbius map. The optimality of the result together with its link with the geometric rigidity of the special orthogonal group are also discussed.
