Verizon Wireless Apple iPhone: Verizon, Apple iPhone Holiday Update

Page 1 of 2

Verizon Wireless Apple iPhone: Yesterday, we discussed AT&T and its reliance on the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone to set a new holiday sales record.

In that article, we also said:

“It will be interesting to see if sales numbers are made public from other carriers, such as Verizon, in the weeks to come.”

Well, we didn’t have to wait too long to take a closer look.

Apple Inc. (AAPL), iPhone 5Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Press Info

According to an update from AppleInsider, Verizon has released numbers regarding activations during the holiday season. Here is a brief excerpt from the article:

“Verizon announced on Wednesday that it activated 9.8 million smartphones in the 2012 holiday season, with a “higher mix of Apple smartphones,” suggesting the carrier accounted for more than 5.3 million iPhone sales in the quarter.”

It is important to note that these numbers are just about as “official as they come” as they were revealed in an 8-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

How does this compare to Verizon’s performance during the same period in 2011? Last year, AppleInsider reported that “the company activated a total of 7.7 million smartphones, 4.2 million of which were iPhones, giving Apple a 54.5 percent share.”

If we assume that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) secured the same share of activations during the past holiday season, it would work out to Verizon selling roughly 5.3 million iPhones.

How is Verizon stacking up to the competition, in terms of iPhone sales?
