A few months back when Apple announced the iPhone 8, the company planned to have some gap between the launch of iPhone 8 and the iPhone X. However, there was some concern if the customers willing to upgrade will wait another month.
Apple so far hasn't released its sales figures for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or the iPhone X, but a new data from analytics firm Mixpanel shows that iPhone X adoption has rapidly overtaken both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus as of late November.
According to Apple Insider, reports show that iPhone X adoption outpaced its cheaper cousins in late November. iPhone X adoption currently stands at 4.76 percent, ahead of the iPhone 8 Plus at 3.59 percent and the iPhone 8 at 2.78 percent. It took less than a month to become the top iPhone of this year.
Mixpanel's data doesn't reveal any sales figures but measures people picking up the new iPhones and using apps that are integrated with the firm's software development kit. Apple is yet to deliver any strong information about the pace of the iPhone X sale, simply saying that demand was "very strong."
It's still difficult to say which of the three new devices are selling well compared to the previous launches. Apple already stopped announcing the first-weekend sales report with the iPhone 7, because the number usually reflected supply rate rather than the customer demand.
During the Apple's third quarter call, Apple chief executive Tim Cook ducked the question on iPhone X sales when analysts asked him about the pre-orders of the device.
