iPhone XR was the most popular model in US over the past quarter

There has been a lot of skepticism regarding the sales and popularity of the iPhone XR. But according to data from CIRP (Consumer Intelligence Research Partners), the iPhone XR was the best selling iPhone in the US over the past fiscal quarter.

According to them, the iPhone XR accounted for nearly 40% of sales of all iPhones in the US in the past quarter.

The next most popular model was the iPhone XS Max. And unsurprisingly, of the three new models that were announced last year, the iPhone XS was the least popular.

To give some further perspective on the numbers, the iPhone XS Max and XS accounted for 26% of all sales in the past quarter. In turn, the iPhone XS Max outsold the XS by more than two to one.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus continue to remain popular and enjoyed strong sales too. But why won't they? They are still immensely capable and powerful phones.

I guess Tim Cook wasn't lying when he said that reports of poor sales of the iPhone XR are "bologna."
