If all the news about iPhone 5s shortages made it sound as though Apple's doing quite well for itself, you'd be right. Recent data compiled by Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley (via AppleInsider) shows that both the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c ranked as two out of the three best-selling smartphones across American providers AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile for September, October and November of this year.
Apparently Apple's doing well overseas, too. As Walkley says, the iPhone 5s was "by far the top selling smartphone...at most channels where the smartphone launched globally." This news is especially noteworthy since it was true even more rumors that China Mobile might take on Apple's beloved smartphones began to coalesce into something approaching reality.
Walkley's data confirms other reports we've heard before. The iPad in particular had a strong sales surge in November, "indicated strong Black Friday weekend iPad Air and new iPad mini sales...essentially at all channels where the iPads were available."
According to Walkley's data, Samsung's competing Galaxy S 4 now sits at second place at all of the listed providers, and the iPhone 5c tends to sit squarely in third place. All in all, not bad for the midrange iPhone, which many critics have been quick to dismiss as something of a failure.
