iPhone 6 is more popular than the iPhone 6 Plus

Apple has just launched its new smartphone line, including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last month, to enormous success and demand. The company has reportedly had issues with meeting demand of the iPhone 6 Plus, since the cumulative number of iPhone 6 devices sold in their first week after launch was around 10 million units. Most of them being 4.7 inch iPhone 6 units, not 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus units.

According to our sources, Apple has presumably sold over 21 million handsets since its launch date, which is a record number of smartphone sales. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus had enormous hype surrounding them and people were jumping at the occasion to buy the phones online and in stores. In the first week of sales of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple sold 10 million of these units, mostly smaller iPhone 6 ones. Now, a month has nearly passed since the iPhone 6 was first announced at the Flint Center on September 9, and it seems that Apple has sold over 21 million units of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

According to analysts, the smaller iPhone 6 is 4 times more popular than the phablet iPhone 6 Plus, making up for about 17 million units sold since launch date, while the iPhone 6 Plus makes up the rest of the 4 million units sold. It seems that Apple might have shot itself in the foot with the iPhone 6 Plus because customers don’t seem to be all that interested in the phone. We need to consider that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus haven’t made it to China yet, so whether people like the phablet-form on the iPhone 6 Plus will be further detailed when the phone gets there. In the US, the iPhone 6 makes up for almost 6% of all iOS running phones, whilst the iPhone 6 Plus makes up for only 0.5% of iOS devices.

Maybe people like the way the iPhone 6 Plus was designed, and the problem is shortage of supply. Apple has been focusing on catching up with the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus, so the company surely expected the phablet to sell less than its little brother. If that was what crossed Apple’s mind, they might have been wrong – demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is above expectations. Apple is struggling to keep up with the demand and we hope there won’t be an issue when the iPhone 6 lands in China on October 17.

My life-long dream has been to test out every gadget on the market! Considering the fact that I've rapidly destroyed almost every gadget I've had so far, I'm not inclined to owning something, so my ideal outcome would be to have a different gadget each month. I'm really into smartphones, wearables and tablets and I love Playstation and Xbox, I'm sure I'll beat you at your own game (after a month of training... or two)
