Apple doesn’t seem to slowdown the rush of incredible success of the iPhone 5S. Earlier this week, it reached up to 10% of all iPhone models — beating the predecessor, the iPhone 5 in the same period – the newly launched iPhone has now reached on the top of the iPhone podium and has become the most sold smartphone in the United States.
The report is presented by Canaccord Genuinity analyst T. Michael Walkey, who noted that in the month of November iPhone 5S had crushed the competition in stars and stripes, beating all the Android manufacturers by topping the chart at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.
In the United States, Apple wasn’t doing very well before releasing the iPhone 5S and 5C in late summer because of the absence of new products in the stores for 8 months; while the competitors including Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony and Motorola led the market so much so as that the Android world, and Windows Phone grew more marginally, and had snatched the top positions from the Cupertino.
The new iPhone with fingerprint reader, however, has displaced the certainties of competition and overturned all expectations and is now showing higher sales at all major U.S. carriers.
“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,” Walkley explained in a note to clients. “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.”
However, it mightn’t be everything because the iPhone 5S has all the credentials to be the best-selling smartphone in the world. Although, we don’t have official figures right now, but soon China Mobile the largest carrier in the world, will start distributing new iPhones, and it’ll consolidate the results solitary.
In related facts, it might be questionable by Android fans that how iPhone 5S could be the most sold out smartphone when Android has a larger market share. The answer is simple: the market share of the green robot is much larger than that of iOS, but it’s fragmented on hundreds of different devices offered by many different companies.
Walkley also forecasts on Apple stock – on the basis of success of 64-bit iOS device – which could go over the threshold of $600. Hence, in the first quarter of 2014, we expect 54 million iPhones sold, for a total of 186 million for next entire year.
