“Our most recent data shows that people in Asia are adopting the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus the fastest, especially when it comes to the larger 6S Plus,” Dave Hoch reports for Localytics. “But before we dive into the country-specific data, it’s important to look at overall adoption growth in the last week.”
“Globally, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus now account for 2.6% of all iPhones, representing a 0.7 percentage point increase over last week’s results. This indicates that the most growth came in the first week — likely due to people who pre-ordered their phones and received them in the first couple days after release,” Hoch reports. “In comparison, last year’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus accounted for 4.0% of all iPhones, two weeks into their availability in 2014.”
Hoch reports, “Of the 12 countries where the 6S and 6S Plus are available, Japan has adopted the new models the fastest, as the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus now account for 6% of all iPhones in Japan.”
