Every time Apple launches a new iPhone, the company claims that it’s the best iPhone they have ever made. Still, it doesn’t guarantee that the newest iPhone will also become the best-selling iPhone. In fact, we have witnessed in the history of Apple that whenever a new iPhone gets launched, the older model starts getting more sales than the new one.
In this article, we have listed 5 iPhones, which are ranked as the best-selling iPhones in the history of Apple. These phones were best known for having a futuristic and slim design, amazing cameras, the latest features, and technology.
Apple iPhone 5:
The biggest reason why iPhone 5 became so popular was that it had a bigger screen, it was way lighter due to the aluminum body and taller than the previous iPhone. By the time it was launched, android mobile phone companies were offering large-screen phones, and to compete with the android phone, Apple launched the iPhone 5. Apple increased the screen size from 3.5 inches to 4 inches with its new iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 was very slim and attractive, also, the in-hand feel of the phone was amazing. People went so crazy for the iPhone 5 that it sold over two million units in just 24 hours of pre-order sales and within three days, the sale went up to 5 million units.
After the massive success of the iPhone 5, Apple launched a better version of the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5S. If we talk about the design of both phones, they both looked almost the same. Still, the new iPhone 5s was much more faster, brighter, and smarter. The phone came with a 4-inch display and an 8 MP camera with 64 GB internal storage. It is also worth mentioning that the iPhone 5s was the one that first introduced fingerprint access on a smartphone. Even with all these amazing features, it still remained the second best-selling smartphone with sales of over 163.7 Million units.
The iPhone 6 was launched in 2014, and if we compare it to all the previous iPhones, it is without a doubt the most popular and the most selling iPhone product in the history of Apple. The iPhone 6 recorded a massive 222.4 million unit sales since its launch, and it will probably remain as the most-sold Apple iPhone for the next many years. The iPhone 6 came with a massive 4.7-inch display, despite the huge screen size, the phone was lighter and slimmer compared to all previous iPhones. The phone was equipped with 128GB of storage and also had the same fingerprint access we saw in the iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 6s was definitely way ahead of its time. The better version of the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s was best known for its amazing photography. It was equipped with a 12 MP camera that could record 4K videos with 30 frames per second. This was the best camera update Apple had ever provided. Even today, many smartphones don’t offer this kind of camera setup. The iPhone 6s also came with a 4.6-inch LCD screen and with the exact same design as the iPhone 6. Apple sold over 124.5 million units of the iPhone 6s worldwide.
The iPhone 12 was probably the first iPhone ever that came with so many changes. As soon as the iPhone 12 launched in 2020, it became a big hit, because it was the first iPhone that was offering 5G technology. The second reason was that it reincarnated the iPhone 4 design. Instead of the traditional round border design, the iPhone 12 had sharp box-like borders that looked very premium and attractive. The iPhone 12 was also the first iPhone that has a dual camera setup and a ceramic shield. The iPhone 12 also came with many vibrant and trendy colors, for this, the phone quickly became everyone’s favorite and took over the market. The phone witnessed a sale of over 100 million units by April 2021.
