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.

Impressive.

It's called aggregation. I can point to 10 stories that are exclusively sourced from one weak source on any topic you name.

You really are irritating... ;)

I know what aggregation is. The three articles I linked are not aggregation. They are editorials. Three different articles by three different authors on three different sites. Not personal blogs, well established sites. One is Forbes for heavens sake...

Well see whats what in October. I personally think Apple's quarterly will look wonderful - how could it not? They did sell 9 million phones after all...

My caveat is I think they did a bit of channel stuffing to make sure those sales showed up on the current quarters report. Well see - if we start hearing carriers whining about a glut of 5Cs they can't sell...

hmmm... Different analyst this time. Is this guy notoriously untrustworthy too? His numbers are even lower for the 5S.

Just saying, that wonderful mind-blowing 9 million unit launch is starting to not look as great. If anywhere near half of those units were 5Cs, then Apples launch margins are going to be affected negatively compared to previous launches.
