Apple’s latest iPhone 5S has been selling well since it launched in September, and now according to a recent report, the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C grabbed a 76 percent share of Japan’s smartphone market for October.
The news comes from Kantar World Panel, who has said that Apple has a 61 percent share of all smartphone sales with mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo in Japan and a 76% share of the total smartphone market in Japan.

KWP ComTech Japan: #Apple takes 76% share of Japan Smartphone sales during October, including 61% on #NTT DoCoMo
NTT DoCoMo previously lost 3.2 million customers to other carriers like Softbank in Japan over the last few years, Softbank was the original iPhone partner of Apple in Japan.
Unfortunately there are no details on exactly how many iPhones have been sold in Japan, and there is no breakdown between the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C.
Apple has yet to provide any official sales figures for each of its handsets, it groups them together and announces the total iPhones sold, although as the iPhone 5C has been readily available since launch, it is easy to work out that the iPhone 5S is selling more units than the iPhone 5C.
Apple has now released a new iPhone SE to replace the iPhone 5S, have a look at out guide on the iPhone 5S vs iPhone SE.
