iPhone 7 Plus Ends up Becoming Most Popular Model in the US as iPhone Units Start Getting Officially Sold


The official release of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has taken the United States by storm, and it turns out that the phablet variant of the device has actually outsold the 4.7-inch counterpart. There are several other statistics that you might be interested in so let’s get right to it.

iPhone 7 Plus Coupled With Its Black Models Have Ended up Becoming the Most Popular Versions of Apple’s Latest Smartphone Lineup

According to statistics drawn up by Slice Intelligence, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus has outsold the iPhone 7 in the United States, making it the first time that the Plus-sized versions of the smartphone becoming more popular than the smaller variants, and it’s probably due to the upgrades that you’ll be getting with the latest phablet family. Keep in mind that this information was obtained based on e-receipt data from nearly 32,000 customers who belong to the research firm's panel, and a lot could happen as time goes on.

In addition, the data shows that during the first 48 hours of availability, 55 percent of customers ordered the iPhone 7 Plus, compared to 41 percent for the iPhone 6s Plus and 35 percent for the iPhone 6 Plus. I have to say that with the higher storage model, coupled with the exclusive dual-camera feature, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus would quickly end up becoming a favorite amongst consumers. Not only this, but it also turns out that Black is the most popular color model and was selected by 23 percent of the entire consumer base. This is probably the reason why both Black and Jet Black were scarce in stock volume.

With the 64GB storage model replaced with the 128GB storage version, it provides the immediate sweet spot for consumers. Complete ballers are definitely going to be purchasing the 256GB internal storage model, but the 128GB storage variant ended up becoming the most popular, accounting for 67 percent of the total number of iPhones sold. However, I feel that because 128GB of storage is going to feel like overkill for millions of consumers, it might force them to overlook the 256GB model, resulting in unsold inventory.
