I think that’s fair to some degree. Sadly, we don’t have either the 4S or the 5s sales broken out for those years. So we can only guess based on estimates. (Which I’m sure plenty of folks are working on right now.)
The real question is if the iPhone 5c cannibalized any of the 5s sales? I have to believe that the 5c sales are far higher than the 4S sales were last year at the launch of the iPhone 5. It is, after all, a new product versus a year-old one — regardless of the simplistic thought of it being “basically the same thing but with a cheaper plastic body”.
Point being, whereas a lot of people are wondering if the comparison is unfair because it’s two new products instead of one new one, I wonder if that new lower-priced product is eating into the sales of the higher-priced one far more than it did last year.
End of the day, the bottom line is that Apple sold a shit ton of phones over the weekend.
I think it’s clear that Apple is focussing on generations rather than individual models when reporting sales figures at the moment.
Schiller has been quoted before of saying ‘generation’ rather than model when referring to sales.
