According to information from MixPanel, the iPhone Xr has finally surpassed the iPhone Xs in terms of usage. Despite being out a month longer, the iPhone Xr — the Xs’ cheaper counterpart — passed the Xs this week.
Apple’s largest flagship device, the iPhone Xs Max, is currently on top with a fair lead, even with its top-end price tag. Even so, the cheaper, more budget-friendly iPhone Xr is geared to surpass even the Max in usage over the next month. This news comes after Apple’s acknowledgement of weaker iPhone sales.
Apple has been very vocal about the popularity of the iPhone Xr right out the gate. the Xr features a single True Depth camera and Apple’s “Liquid Retina” LCD screen. The Xs and Xs Max, feature dual True Depth lens and an AMOLED screen. They all feature varying screen sizes though, with the Xs coming in at 5.8 inches, the Xr at 6.1 inches and the Xs Max at 6.5 inches.
The Xr shot from a 2.24 percent usage to 3.02 percent, a 0.78 percent increase. The iPhone Xs saw an increase in usage as well. It was only a 0.36 percent increase though, going from 2.53 to 2.89 percent.
From people not wanting to give up the home button, to its even more economical price point, last year’s models are still selling quite well. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus hold the largest usage at a combined 20 percent. The iPhone X, the first iPhone to ditch the home button, holds an 11.71 percent usage.
It should be noted that Apple doesn’t report these numbers. MixPanel uses web and app analytics to extrapolate this data.
