Apple will be happy and sad at same time. Why so? It is because that where Apple's high end iPhone 5S is breaking previous sales records, the low-end iPhone 5C is selling very less in numbers. The sales ratio between the 2 devices is two to one. More than double numbers of iPhone 5S models are sold till now than iPhone 5C.

According to the latest survey by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) that a total of 64% iPhone 5S models were sold during last days of September while iPhone 5C only accounts 27%. It means that iPhone 5S outsells iPhone 5C. 

The remaining 9% sold iPhones were iPhone 4S. This survey report is based on the latest U.S. sales figures of Apple’s iPhone models. But Tim Cook thinks different. He said during Apple’s last earnings call, "I don’t subscribe to the common view that the higher end, if you will, of the smartphone market is at its peak. I don’t believe that.”

But current situation shows that iPhone 5S is twice more popular than iPhone 5C during initial days of its launch despite of its higher price. What might be the reason of iPhone 5C lower sales? The one clear cut factor is its high price against its plastic body and low-end features. But will the situation remains same with passage of time? CIRP co-founder Josh Lowitz thinks that it will change.

Lowitz told AllThingsD, “The relative performance of all three iPhones is generally in line with the performance of the similarly priced phones following the launch of the iPhone 5 in 2012. Over time, the lower-priced phones have tended to gain share versus the flagship phone, after the initial rush of dedicated upgraders to the newest device. So we expect that the 5c will account for a higher percent of total U.S. iPhone sales in the coming months, but the design changes may alter that dynamic. The iPhone 5c may appeal to different buyers than the legacy 4S did last year, or the new 5s will this year.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
