    Anyone got the numbers? All I am hearing is that they are not selling very well, but this is mostly Chinese sites using google translate. Is there some kind of media blackout surrounding this?

    The media reports that Apple sold over 9 million new phones on launch weekend. Apple doesnt release specific numbers by device, but some web reports are saying its as much as 78% iPhone 5S... that would break out to:

    iPhone 5S: 7,020,000
    iPhone 5C: 1,980,000

    Thanks. Is that like when a music single sells, and they are not in consumers hands? Please clarify.

    Apple only reports actual sales to customers... not "in the pipe" sales, if that’s what you’re asking...

    Why? Where are you going with this?

    Well, I was just looking at the relative sales of 5c to 5s in the UK, and it seemed very peculiar. The numbers provided are for activations, not sales though, yes?

    I believe that it’s actual end user sales... the difference being a person who ordered one but is still waiting on delivery would count, where it would not yet be activated.

    So it includes sales for people who have paid, but not had anything sent to them, as well as people with the phone. Now the figures are making sense, thanks. It

    So, some of these figures are for units not even in boxes yet, nevermind in the post. That helps to explain, thanks.
