Localytics iPhone 5s Adoption is AcceleratingApple’s new iPhones are enjoying record adoption among consumers around the world.

Having only launched in September, Apple’s new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c already make up a hefty little chunk of all iPhones in use around the globe.

Localytics reported this week that both freshly released iPhones already account for 5% of all iPhones presently activated.

Today, the iPhone 5s and 5c now represent 3.8% and 1.7% of all active iPhones globally seen by Localytics. Meanwhile, the iPhone 5 remains the most popular iPhone with a nearly 40% share.

The U.S. is still showing the highest iPhone 5c adoption rate, but it’s Japan where you’ll find the highest concentration of active iPhone 5s and 5c relative to other iPhone models, “representing nearly 10% of all active iPhones in that country,” today’s report confirms.

All told, the iPhone 5s is the more dominant of the new devices when compared to the iPhone 5c. In Germany, for example, the 5s is holding steadfast to an almost a 9 to 1 advantage over the 5c.
