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.
These numbers are impressive, no matter how much massaging was done to them.
There is no breakdown between the high and low price units. Having a low price unit likely helped for this launch.
The number most intriguing is the 200 million iOS 7 updates. Without knowing exactly how many upgradable devices are out-there, it`s a bit difficult to gauge what proportion have been upgraded.
Anyways, it looks like more iPhone 5 devices were sold in one weekend than the combined sum of BlackBerry, Nokia, and Windows Phones in the last quarter.
