 Apple probably figured a fresh look version of the iP 5 would sell somewhat better than just the same old thing. and normally that would be true. what may not be normal is the 5s might be a real sensation.
 no. you're making an "adjustment." but what matters in fact is the total sold in any given time period, period. for your adjustment to be valid, total sales would have to drop accordingly in the future (how long was the delay in the China sales start for iPhone 5? i dunno). either the 5s/c sell more in the last quarter of the year + 10 days of September than the same period of last year (or the same number of days after launch), or they don't. more is more (or less is less).
so when are the pundits and analysts going to realize Touch ID is a genuine "killer feature" that has just iced the sales of high-end Android phones?   Monday?
 no, 7 million would be 40% growth over last year. i know what you mean - you mean apples to apples due to sub-markets release timing. but if Apple makes a deal with China Mobile soon, as expected, that throws last year out completely as any basis for such comparison. more is more.
The 5s' Touch ID is a real "killer feature" that will impact the market strongly - because it is so convenient and consumers are getting more security conscious than ever. just about everyone that tries it wants it. sales of high end droid phones (not all the cheap stuff) are going to drop significantly immediately, and stay down until the OEM's come up with their own biometric sensors of some kind in new models. and if they don't work as instantly, easily, and reliably...

no, no! this not innovation! Apple can no longer innovate - the analysts all say so. this is just ... fooling around. wifi never craps out! i say so!
OMG - gadget porn! hubba-hubba!
sure, if the 5c/5s first weekend sales don't at least match last year's, that will be a bad sign for real. if your "latest and greatest" drops off from the previous model (all other things being equal) that is not good.   plus with two new models this time and an expanded global launch, that alone should boost initial sales.   and there is a lot of enthusiasm about the 5s. it's gotten mostly 4/5 star reviews, except for a few nagging nabobs of negativism. Touch ID in...
 i think this is a pretty good indicator for the proportion of iOS users who are genuine "early adopters." more than i thought.
