With every iPhone launch, Apple has gone and broken the previous iPhone’s launch, so with the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c last Friday, did Apple managed to repeat their success? Well according the figures that Apple recently released, it looks like the Cupertino company has managed to go on and sell 9 million iPhone units over the first 3 days of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c’s launch. However Apple did not break the figures down, meaning that we are not sure just how successful either iPhone device really is. However as we had reported earlier, data collected has shown that the iPhone 5s is outselling the iPhone 5c by a factor of 3.4, so we guess it shouldn’t be too hard to figure it out.
To put it into context, the iPhone 5 back in 2012 managed to sell 5 million units, but that was based on a single device, so these numbers don’t really tell us how successful the new products really are. According to a statement made by Tim Cook, “This is our best iPhone launch yet―more than nine million new iPhones sold―a new record for first weekend sales […] The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”
