  • iPhone 5s Leads Sales at Top U.S. Carriers


    It will come as no surprise that Apple's new flagship iPhone is leading sales at the top carriers in the United States today. At all four carriers, the iPhone 5s is the top sales generator, followed closely by the iPhone 5c.

    New tracking data from Canaccord Genuity shows that AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-mobile were all hotbeds of activity for new iDevice sales by the end of September.

    Canaccord didn't note how many units were sold, but the firm stated that the Samsung Galaxy S4 was knocked cleanly out of the top spot on the sales leaderboard.

    Based on what it's seen so far, Canaccord believes Apple will sell more than 52 million iPhones worldwide during the last quarter of the year.
    The biggest sales laggards for the month of September were BlackBerry's Z10 and Q10 handsets, as well as the HTC One.

      Yeah. I mean at this moment I thought they didn't actually have any inventory to sell?

      You can't sell what you underproduce Apple. You're displeasing many customers waiting for one since day 1.

      I can't believe people still think they can get an iPhone within a week if you ordered it on day one. You need to order it at 3am to get it right away. There's about a 2 hour window that you need to hit. If you didn't hit that window than you have to wait. It's a first come first serve basis. Quit complaining. 9 million phones is a crap load of phones. I don't think people realize how many 9 million is anymore.

      They made more units than they have ever made for a release and you're still displeased? When the iPhone 5 came out it sold about 2 million the first 24 hours. This release the 5s and 5c sold 9 million. Now that's two phones, but the 5c didn't account for much of that.

      You have to realize they're selling them in more countries than ever also. How can they meet that demand when it's so high? It's impossible.

      i ordered via apple store app and choose in store pick up, it was in very first hour that Apple made this possible online in store check, it was on Monday right after iP5S was released. Guess what... i got available in store that 24 miles away from where i was. Silver/white 64GB beauty was in my hand in exactly 1 hour . Same scenario was last year with iP5, but then i got right at the release day. I'm still thinking that I'm getting lucky only because both phones was with 64GB which is $100 more expensive. Well i might be wrong

      I ordered two iPhone 5's when they were released last year. Stayed up till 3AM and the order was completed for the second one at 3:15AM. They showed up on my doorstep at noon on the day they were released in stores.
