iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, as predicted, attract fewer early upgraders in comparison with the last-year iPhone 5 and previous models. What that means is that people owning an iPhone 5 are unlikely to change it for 5s or 5c. And that makes sense, I guess.
According to the Localytics report, iPhone 5s currently represents nearly 4% of the global iPhone share. iPhone 5c still remains less demanded - it accounts for only about 2%. However, latest estimates show that Apple’s plastic handset is gaining popularity, especially in the U.S.A.
After announcing the new iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display, updated MacBooks, Mac Pros and the free OS X Mavericks yesterday, Apple decided to release iOS 7.0.3 that same evening. This minor update contains numerous bug fixes, safety improvements as well as a bunch of new features aimed to make the integration between Apple’s mobile and desktop operating systems even deeper. Moreover, there’re some enhancements that deal with iPhone 5s’ Touch ID sensor.
You probably know that the new Apple’s flagship - iPhone 5s - is currently outselling its plastic counterpart - iPhone 5c. According to a poll, conducted by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) in September, the 5s has taken nearly 70% of Apple's overall smartphone sales.
iPhone 4S users complain about numerous problems with Broadcom Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controller after the upgrade to iOS 7. Apple's support forums are currently overwhelmed with help requests and complaints connected with the abovementioned issues.

These pages are really helpful, especially if you’ve purchased the iPhone for the first time and have no idea of how to use it.

After close to one week of sales, we found that, overall, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco held the largest market share in the U.S. for iPhone 5s and 5c activations. This is to be expected given the size of their populations. However the real surprise was that San Francisco came in third. Considering San Francisco is actually the 11th largest market in the U.S., its status as a technology haven also, clearly, translates to a culture of early adoption.
We then looked at the distribution of the iPhone 5s and 5c for each of the cities. Again, San Francisco stood out, showing the strongest preference for the 5s over the 5c (85% vs. 15%) among the top 12 major U.S. cities. Philadelphia showed the lowest preference with 72%.
