Anonymous, 23 Sep 2013they started pre-selling the 5c a week before the 5s. better do your research mate.There's a difference between a pre-order and a sale. You don't record pre-orders as sales because it's just a promise of availability. No one actually got their phone until the 20th.
murtz, 23 Sep 2013Ip5c is almost flop..ip5s is also outdated phone...so after 2 3 months demand will go down by ... moreI think it's too early to pronounce the 5c DOA.
Early adopters tend to be up on tech, and will naturally see the $100 difference between the 5c and 5s as minimal over a two year contract. What's that work out to? $4/month? Pocket change considering what you get.
BUT ... for average Joes coming in wanting to look at an iPhone? Espeically if in the past he just didn't want to pay that much?
The $100 may make a difference. If he doesn't take that many pictures with his phone and he doesn't care about the fingerprint sensor, he may just opt for the cheaper phone.
After all, it's worked well in pushing up Android and Windows Phone numbers.
I wonder how accurate this figure is. Considering the market share of ios, if this is accurate, shouldn't ios be the dominant OS by now?

Who are you to dictate what people should do with their money? Seems you think complaining about taxes is a bad thing. I guess you're one of the folks who just likes to give his money to the government where he has no control over it.
Sunny Shekhar, 23 Sep 2013gud but how many 5S in 9 millions I assume 5s sold more than 5c, coz the price is not so friendly for 5c. Apple ftw. It's good to see Apple holding a ground on mobile phone industry, coz it will somehow shake the competition and others will strive harder for cheaper alternatives.
Most of the people do not go to websites like GSMarena...., they just do not know what they are buying. What they know is a new phone is released, and they are eagering to have it. This is what the ordinary people will act.
weren't they pre-selling the iphone 5c a week before? what's the sales figure for that? or that's included in the 9M already? they were unusually quiet on that weekend.
sold out goes both ways. either you really sold a LOT of phones or you have limited stocks. then again it was reported before the weekend that the 5s will have limited inventory. so there you go.
