Apple is set to announce its earnings in just a couple hours and while the company probably won’t say how many iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units it sold specifically, research firm Localytics just released a report this morning claiming the iPhone 5s and 5c already account for 5.5% of all global active iPhones.
“Much has been written about the head-to-head battle of the iPhone 5s and 5c including our own research from last week that showed that the iPhone 5c is starting to close the gap on its higher-end sibling. Today, the iPhone 5s and 5c now represent 3.8% and 1.7% of all active iPhones globally seen by Localytics. Meanwhile, the iPhone 5 remains the most popular iPhone with a nearly 40% share.”
The report also found that while the iPhone 5s has been quick to take root in the U.S., it’s Japan who has the highest percentage active of iPhone 5s. Germany has the highest relative share of iPhone 5s units vs 5c unts with 87% in favor of the 5s, while sales in the U.S. are starting to balance out with 67% preferring the more expensive 5s over the 5c.
