Analytics company Mixpanel has become a reliable source of iOS adoption information, but its tools also allow for tracking of iPhone model adoption.

The company’s data comes from analytical frameworks inside apps and mobile websites, which are able to view iPhone model numbers and other details.

According to the Mixpanel data, the iPhone XR is actually the best-selling iPhone model every week, echoing what Apple VP Greg Joswiak said last month. Dit is beoordeeld door het vergelijken van de toename in iPhone XR adoptie op een week-bij-week basis met de iPhone XS en iPhone XS Max adoptie nummers. The iPhone XR does not lead by a wide margin, and there are individual days where it’s outsold by the iPhone XS or XS Max, but on a week-by-week basis, it pulls ahead.

If you look at the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max data combined, however, the iPhone XR is regularly outsold by that combination.

iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X adoption is also holding steady. This is not a surprise, though, as it’s not necessarily a fair comparison to compare two models versus one. Faktisk, det er noen uker hvor adoptionsnumre faktisk økes for de sidste generationens enheder. As of December 8th, iPhone X adoption is at 11.39 percent, followed by the iPhone 8 Plus at 9.31 percent, and the iPhone 8 at 9.22 percent.

One interesting thing to look at, however, is the adoption rate of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X after launch last year, in comparison to the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR this year.

Mixpanel explains that the iPhone XR set 1.5 percent adoption , while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus secured 3.6 percent adoption during the same period following its launch.

For the higher-end iPhone models, Mixpanel looks at adoption over the two month period after launch. The iPhone X secured approximately 7 percent adoption during this time, while the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max secured approximately 5 percent adoption.

You can view Mixpanel’s interactive iPhone adoption charts here and here. Ultimately, the data shows that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS are the last iPhone’s iPhone X, but the iPhone XR is indeed the best-selling iPhone, as Apple suggested last month.
