» ‘iPhone 5c replaces 5s as UK’s most popular handset’

I’m not sure I completely buy these survey results as being more scientific than science-riffic, but it’s another indicator that the iPhone 5c isn’t the failure it’s been painted as. And the reason makes some sense:

The 5c moved up one position to replace the 5s, which dropped down to second. uSwitch.com said the 5s’s dip in popularity is likely due to people holding out for the launch of the iPhone 6.

The iPhone 5c was always supposed to have a long tail rather than being a big draw on the release weekend. That’s exactly what happened.
