iPhone 5c sales are reaching those of iPhone 5s



Localytics has published a new report that claims San Francisco to be the best selling location for the iPhone 5s while in general the gap between iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c sales is dwindling.

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%.

New York Police Department Encourages People to Update to iOS 7



The New York City Police Department is asking people to upgrade to iOS 7. This is all due to its improved security and, among the rest - due to the ‘Activation Lock’ feature.

According to some police officials, the seventh version of the Apple’s mobile operating system is probably the most protected.

After months of pressure from a global coalition of elected officials and law enforcement agencies, we are pleased that Apple is set to release a new mobile operating system that includes a theft deterrent feature called Activation Lock. This is an important first step towards ending the global epidemic of smartphone theft.

Looks like the new iPhones are really worth purchasing devices.
