iPhone 5S is the Best-Selling Smartphone at All Four Major U.S. Carriers

Apple is the top choice of Americans in smartphones. 4 months ago, Samsung was the top smartphone vendor in the US. Samsung Galaxy S4 was the most popular smartphone in August 2013. And Apple's iPhone 5 was the second-most popular smartphone in the US. Galaxy S4 topped the sales charts at Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. iPhone 5 was on top at AT&T alone.

However, Apple has taken its top position back by launching new iPhones in September 2013. Now iPhone 5S is the best-selling smartphone on all 4 major US carriers. iPhone 5S has retained its top position for the third month in a row. This new Apple's flagship iPhone is consecutively topping the sales charts at all 4 big US carriers in September, October and Novermber.

According to a survey by Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley, Apple's new iPhones are continuously dominating the smartphone sales in the US. Both the new iPhones have been among the top three sellers at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile every during the past three months. iPhone 5S remains on the top of their sales charts every month since launch due to its strong demand. 

Walkley states, “Our surveys indicated continued strong sales of the iPhone 5s, as it was by far the top selling smartphone at all four tier-1 U.S. carriers and at most channels where the smartphone launched globally,” 

iPhone 5C has also been among the top three sellers on all 4 US carriers. iPhone 5C remained second best-selling or third best-selling smartphone at the major US carriers due to its steady sales. Walkley said, “Our surveys also indicated steady iPhone 5c sales with the smartphone’s color options and more affordable price point proving popular with its intended audience.”

On the basis of improved iPhone 5S supply and strong sales of new iPhones, Walkley has also improved his iPhone shipment estimate from 52M to 54M for first quarter of next year.
