iPhone 5S outsells iPhone 5C during launch weekend

Latest reports suggest that the iPhone 5S has sold at a margin of three to one when compared to the iPhone 5C in the launch weekend.  

A recent report disclosed that Apple sold over nine million units in the release weekend of the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. However, the iPhone 5S seems to be more popular than the iPhone 5C. Another report now reveals that out of the nine million units sold, the iPhone 5S accounted for around 6.75 million units, while the iPhone 5C saw around 2.75 million units sold.

"In less than 3 days, the iPhone 5s and 5c combined now represent about 1.36% of the total numbers of all iPhones activated in the U.S. market across the top 4 carriers AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile. From the data we are seeing, 1.05% of all iPhones in the United States are now iPhone 5s and just 0.31% are iPhone 5c. That means that the iPhone 5s outshines the 5c by a factor of 3.4x, a clear indicator that the early adopters are favoring the high-end 5s compared to 5c. This makes sense since those who feel the need to buy a new device the very weekend it launches are most likely the power users who want the highest-end phone experience," reports Localytes.

Previous iterations of the iPhone have sold like hot cakes in the release weekend and it seems that the latest top-end iPhone 5S and the middle-tier iPhone 5C are no different. However, it looks like even with a cheaper price tag, the iPhone 5C has not attracted as many customers when compared to the iPhone 5S, which bears a premium price.

The latest iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C are available via all major carriers in the U.S., with AT&T seeing the highest adoption rates for both the handsets in the launch weekend. The iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C together represent 0.67 percent of all activated iPhones in the country. Verizon has a market adoption of 0.51 percent followed by Sprint and T-Mobile, which have an adoption rate of 0.12 percent and 0.07 percent, respectively.
