Which is the Most Popular iPhone 5c Colour?

Posted by: Ben Griffiths on

All iPhone 5c Colours

Here at iPhoneStockChecker we've been working hard to provide the very best UK iPhone stock finder. As a result of our investigations we managed to obtain some data from a UK network source out about which iPhone colours people are ordering, and we thought we'd share it!

So, what is everyone buying? Which colour should you pick to stand out from the crowd? Is white the safe choice, powering into the lead? Or as with the Gold iPhone 5s are people more excited about the new options? Let's find out.

And The Winner Is

This data is based on thousands of sales, both online and in hundreds of stores so it should be representative, at least for the UK (contract sales). The first bit of interesting analysis we did was 16Gb vs 32Gb to see whether people are putting value for money ahead of storage space (with iTunes Match, Photo Stream and the rest of iCloud it's a lot easier to get by with the smallest iPhone than ever before). Turns out more than 90% of iPhone 5c sales have been 16Gb, backing this up. The fact that the iPhone 5s is priced similarly to the 32Gb 5c also goes some way to explaining this.

With that out of the way; on to the results:

iPhone Colour UK Sales - mid Sep 2013

Pink! Admittedly we were kind of expecting this, due to the historic success of phones like this little beauty (oh, memories...) but still, nearly half of all 5c sales are in the pink.

Remember when phones had buttons?

The Bubblegum Pink - we think

Motorola RAZR V3, circa 2004. Or is it Hot Pink?

However, the other colours surprised us. We expected white would be the safe pick and attract a high number of orders but it seems less than 1 in 10 iPhone 5c buyers agree. Given the chance to buy a colourful iPhone over 90% of customers have done exactly that! Blue is a strong second with nearly 1/3rd of customers, then there's a big dropoff to Green (perhaps the most vibrant option) and bringing up the rear, with a tiny success rate of 1% (and this is rounded up) is Yellow - so if standing out from the crowd is important to you you know what to pick..

So there we are - boring old iPod White gets knocked down a peg or two and Pink is the champ! What about you? Yellow match your Ferrari? Think the 5c should come in more colours? Waiting for what must be the inevitable Project Red version? Sound off below!

its really disappointing to me that there's no purple iphone as not only is it a traditionally regal colour, it fits well within the tertiary colour spectrum (unlike white) which from a design perspective is clearly the palette they were sampling..........

pretty sure Apple are missing a trick here

having said that if it were me I would have yellow because daffodils are my favourite flower.

Good points - along these lines, red is a very auspicious colour (associated with wealth) in China so it wouldn't surprise me to see that joining the parade.

And if you like yellow you're in luck, because that seems to be the least popular colour

What about more colours? Will apple release a new one before xmas? I woujldn't mind seeing a (RED) version like they've done with other apple gear.

The (RED) stuff wouldn't fit with their colour scheme so I can't see that happening. Not till they get desperate anyway. Besides, Bono has enough money already...
