Report: iPhone 5s Sales Beating iPhone 5c Two to One

A bit of advice for anyone who was worried about the less-expensive iPhone 5c cannibalizing Apple's flagship smartphone sales: relax. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners surveyed consumers to find out which iPhones were purchased in September. As AllThingsD reports, the iPhone 5s is the overwhelming favorite.

iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s sales

Breaking down the results of the analysis, the iPhone 5s accounts for 64 percent of all new iPhone sales during the survey period. This is compared to 27 percent for the iPhone 5c and just nine percent for the iPhone 4s. Not only are these strong numbers for the top billed iPhone 5s, the ratio is mostly holding steady when compared to last year's iPhone 5 launch.

The iPhone 5s launch has been another example of demand outpacing supply. Walking into an Apple store and leaving with the latest iPhone is easier said than done. Checking Apple's website to see if the device is in stock at multiple stores can be tedious. According to the latest estimates from Apple, ordering online means shipping will take place sometime in October, which could mean up to 28 days from now.

Simply enter a zip code along with the specific configuration you're looking for and voilà, the latest in-stock data from Apple's website is listed for the closest 20 Apple locations.
