Apple today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

Informal metrics show that the 5S outsold the 5c by 3.5x.

I don't doubt that could be accurate, but it is a rather round-about way to come about the stats (counting carrier activations).

Regardless, I'm still a bit skeptical. If it turns out to be exactly 3.5x, well that puts the sales of the 5S way ahead of the 5 launch (7 million units)...

Why would Apple not report this instead of this "combined" number??? It just looks a bit shady to me.
