iPhone 6 beating out its bigger brother by a 6-to-1 margin
iphone sales data

For the first time in the history of the iPhone, Apple launched two new sizes of its iconic handset this year, so which way the sales would swing was anyone's guess. The smaller -- and cheaper -- iPhone 6 was obviously going to beat out its bigger brother, the 6 Plus, but by how much? App analytics firm Localytics has some early usage data that shows sales of the iPhone 6 beating out the 6 Plus by a huge 6-to-1 margin.

The data was pulled from a pool of 1.5 billion devices, so it's likely a good sample from which to draw conclusions. Of course, with early sales of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus experiencing huge bottlenecks, some hoping for an iPhone 6 Plus may have settled for the smaller model, and vice versa, so it could change a bit as supply meets demand.
