The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, in a little more than a month since going on sale, account for 5.5 percent of the total iPhones worldwide according to analytics firm Localytics.

Specifically, the iPhone 5s accounted for a 3.8 percent share, while the cheaper iPhone 5c accounted for a 1.7 percent share. This corroborates earlier reports of the iPhone 5s outselling the iPhone 5c by a factor of two. The iPhone 5, however, still remains the most common iPhone model all over the world, accounting for a 40 percent share, but its share would reduce as the new iPhones are rolled out to more countries.
