The iPhone XR is currently far and away Apple’s top-selling iPhone model in the U.S.
Right now, it makes up just under half of all new iPhone models sold in Apple’s biggest market. That’s the highest percentage of sales for a single iPhone model since the iPhone 6 back in 2015.
These figures come from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP).
While the iPhone XR is certainly not cheap, it’s significantly cheaper than the iPhone XS and XS Max. Its spec might be slightly lower, but not enough to put customers off. Altogether, Apple’s latest generation of iPhones make up 67% of U.S. sales in the third quarter of the year.
MacDailyNews Take: As expected.
Why would the hoi polloi choose the 5.8-inch iPhone XS when they can get the 6.1-inch iPhone XR? They don’t know the difference between LCD and OLED, they have no idea what 3D Touch is, and it looks/works pretty much the same to them – plus it comes in colors (that they’ll immediately cover with a case; no matter, colors sell). — MacDailyNews, September 20, 2018
As Apple intended. The iPhone XR is the X-class iPhone for the masses! – MacDailyNews, October 16, 2018
