iPhone 5S And iPhone 5C: Nine Million Copies Sold In First Three Days

On September 24, 2013

Strangely, Apple has not made ??public the number of pre-orders for the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, this thing generates some caustic remarks. The two phones have arrived at the stores within nine countries since Friday, 20 September, while sales in the first three days, reached 9 million units.


The first three days after launch is a traditional time to measure the impact of Apple launched phones. Two years ago, iPhone 4S drew 4 million buyers, iPhone 5 managed to achieve a year later the record of 5 million units.

According to the statement made ??today, the two new phones, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, managed to reach the record figure of 9 million units. Jump to the performance of the previous model is visible, but the dry numbers comparisons are not relevant because the conditions are different.

Unlike previous years, Apple entered the market with two models, not one. Moreover, for the first time, the new phones were launched in the first place in China, a market that Apple only has a market share of about 5 percent, but there is also an impressive number of customers.

Unfortunately, Apple did not disclose the individual figures for the two new models. According to data collected by the Localytics Company, it seems that the ratio of the number of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C sold phones is 3:1. If these figures are correct, it means that iPhone 5S has sold about 6.75 million copies, visible progress towards the 5 million iPhone 5 units sold a year ago at the same time, the remaining 2.25 million being represented by the new iPhone 5C.
