According to Cnet, the cheaper version of the latest iPhone, the 5C model, has started to catch up with the huge market demand of Apple’s current flagship smartphone-iPhone 5S.

Though it is a good news for Apple’s cost effective iPhone 5C smartphone, it is still lagging far behind from the 5S model with respect to popularity.

Localytics, a mobile analytics company, states that for each activation of iPhone 5C, 1.9 iPhone 5S are being activated, leaving the 5C model by almost two times behind.

In case of international market, 2.3 iPhone 5S smartphones are being activated for every iPhone 5C. Nonetheless, it is a significant improvement from the terrible market demand of 2 weeks before, when the iPhone 5S outperforms the 5C model by a massive 3.4 factor.

The investigation clearly shows that the iPhone 5C is more popular in the US than the international markets, due to its cheaper price. However, 20 million smartphones were involved in the research.
