Apple unveiled their latest iconic smartphones, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, in September. Both device feature a bigger display compared to its predecessor, and comes with a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display, respectively.
According to a new report, the smaller iPhone 6 is selling much better than the phablet-sized iPhone 6 Plus, but the latter still has a considerable iPhone market share.
A report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners estimated that iPhone 6 is selling almost three times better than the bigger iPhone 6 Plus. Analyst Steven Milunovich of UBS suggests iPhone 6 accounts for 68 percent of the iPhone 6 sales, while the phablet sized model resides at 23 to 24 percent sales.
Combined, both new iPhones amount for almost 91 percent of the total iPhone sales over their first four weeks of availability, while the remaining is captured by last year’s iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Milunovich further mentioned the iPhone 6 is outselling 3-to-1 since Apple is facing supply constraints for the bigger model.
The research also mentioned the average storage for buyers is 48GB, which double compared to last year. This is mostly due to the fact that Apple is selling more storage options this year, that is, 16, 64 and 128GB.
