iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sell 10 million units during launch weekend
If you were curious just how well Apple would do with selling larger iPhones, it turns out that the answer is, better than ever. The company has announced that it sold over 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones in the first weekend of sales. This would include the previously announced 4 million pre-orders of the device that were sold in the first 24 hours of availability. This makes it the best-selling smartphone launch of all time, beating the record of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c last year, which sold 9 million units in the first weekend. Also impressive?? Last year the iPhone 5s launched on day one in China, while this year China isn't included in the sales figures due to a delayed launch.
Due to the massive demand, it may be tough finding an iPhone 6 Plus, as supply of this model is constrained, with the Apple Store showing a 3-4 week backorder on the 5.5-inch device.
Tim Cook, Apple CEO, shared this statement:
“Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We would like to thank all of our customers for making this our best launch ever, shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin. While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.”
In three days the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus go on sales in 20 additional countries. You can pick up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus from Apple.
