The iPhone 5 accounted for 68 percent of total iPhone sales at launch, according to a new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP). While this is a big number it is much less than Apple saw with the iPhone 4S, which grabbed 90 percent of all iPhone sales the first month that it was available for sale.
The report also found that Apple has sold less of the 64GB iPhone 5 models, the highest priced of the devices.The 64GB models represented only 9% of iPhone 5s sold during the first month at retail. The 64GB model of the iPhone 4S, on the other hand, made up 23% of those devices sold when that model was introduced.
iPhone 5 shoppers were more likely to buy from Apple than were those shoppers at the launch of the iPhone 4S. Twenty-nine percent of iPhone 5 shoppers bought from an Apple store or Apple.com at launch, while only 13 percent of shoppers bought their device directly from Apple at the launch of the iPhone 4S.
