iPhone 5s outsells the Galaxy S4 to top the charts in October

Apple iPhone 5sThe October sales reports are in and they show Apple's has found its form. The iPhone 5s has outsold the Galaxy S4, according to the research firm, Counterpoint.

This was achieved, even though the iPhones weren't able to catch up with consumer demand, making many customers wait for their 5s goodness. The jump has been attributed to strong sales in China, where Apple raised it's market share by a whopping 9%, jumping from just 3% to 12% in October alone. Now that supply has increased, counterpoint expects a ramp up in sales.

"With a China Mobile deal on the horizon, Apple's iPhone 5s at all three [Chinese] carriers will for sure ignite a 'price war' boosting the overall iPhone 5s sales in China," Said Tom Kang, of Counterpoint. "This might allow Apple to even reach the No. 1 smartphone player in December or January in China."

Apple's iPhone 5 snagged second place, leaving the Galaxy S4 in third. The 5c was fourth, and the S3 and S4 mini claimed fifth and sixth.

Apple's aggressive move into China is clearly paying off for the Cupertino-based company. Let's see if the tech giant will continue to stay on top for the months to come.
