iphone 5s 5cEarlier this week we had reported that Apple had managed to sell about 9 million iPhones during the weekend launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. However citing competitive reasons, Apple did not break down those numbers for us, leaving us to wonder if there were more iPhone 5s units sold, or more iPhone 5c units, or if it was an even split. Well it turns out that it might have been something of an even split, according to Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities. Given Kuo’s spot-on predictions in the past, his statements do carry a bit of weight and credibility as well.

According to Kuo, he believes that the 9 million sales consisted of 3.5-4.5 million iPhone 5s units, with the iPhone 5c selling 4.5-5.5 million units. Assuming Kuo’s numbers are accurate, this would be rather interesting because just the other day, an analytics firm suggested that the iPhone 5s was outselling the iPhone 5c by a factor of 3.4 which definitely does not suggest a 50-50 split, although it should be noted that the latter’s estimations were tracked from applications and customers, and not representative of the sales over the weekend. What do you guys think? Are you noticing just as many iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units out there?
