original announcement that it was the biggest iPhone launch to date, and the company sold 9 million iPhones in that opening weekend. He didn't breakdown the sales of the iPhone 5c compared to the 5s though. Interestingly, the numbers only cover the launch weekend. Apple has reportedly had supply issues with the iPhone 5s, which has cut into sales, so it will be interesting to see what the full quarter sales look like for the company.Cook reiterated the
Cook also broke down a bit on the iOS 7 update. He said that just 5 days after its release, 200 million devices had upgraded to the new version of the operating system. Interestingly though, only 64% of iOS devices have updated to iOS 7 as of now. That's better than you would expect on Android, but it seems a bit low for an iOS update after one month.

Don't read too much into that 9 million figure. That 9 million could also include sales of the 5, 4s and 4 as well. All of which are still doing pretty decent.

Thats very true and my question is "How many of those phones were actually sold to customers and not carriers". Here in my store; people have not been beating the door down to get either the 5c or 5s by any means. It seems to be that these number are a combo of all the iPhones which you pointed out.

According to some news not only software is buggy but hardware also.

I'm always a little confused when Apple releases the numbers of their newest OS version penetration. Do they mean iOS 7 is on 64% of ALL iOS devices? Or do they mean iOS 7 is on 64% of iOS devices capable of upgrading to iOS 7? Clearly, the former would be more impressive. There's a big difference there & I've never gotten a conclusive answer on which one is the truth.

I saw a lot of people who upgraded to iOS 7 but quickly reverted back. I wonder if they're counting those in the numbers.
