According to the San Francisco based Mixpanel, the sales ratio between iPhone 5s and 5c is 3 to 1 and the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) data shows that the 5s model is outselling the “c” model in 2 to 1 ratio.


During the initial days of launch of the smartphones, the company also faced the overwhelming demand for the iPhone 5s, especially the god toned iPhones. And in line count outside the Apple Stores suggested the iPhone 5s buyers were outnumbered in 20 to 1 ratio. And recently it also reportedly decided to cut the production of iPhone 5c to half – from 300K per day to 150K per day.
