Just last week, Apple revealed that it managed to sell a record breaking 4 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units combined in just over 24 hours. Fast forward to several days later and we’ve got the official numbers for the first three days of the devices being put for grabs and they’re pretty impressive.
Apple says that it sold over 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units in such a short period of time. This record breaking sale took place over the weekend and in select locations, namely the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, France, Puerto Rico and Singapore.
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, went on to confirm that this has been their ‘best launch ever’ and it’s ‘shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin.’ He also made it clear that the company could have sold even more smartphones if it wasn’t for supply issues which it’s struggling to get on track. The latest generation iPhones show that the Cupertino giant is willing to drop its ideologies and give customers exactly what they want.
The 6 Plus model is seeming to be in more demand than the 4.7-inch handset, considering that it grants a large 5.5-inch FHD Retina display. Both devices come with the latest Apple A8 processor which is 64-bit enabled and offers a decent performance upgrade over its predecessor. The company also launched new services including Apple Pay for making secure payments via NFC.
Apple plans to make the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus available in 20 more countries on September 26 followed by a total of 115 markets by the end of the year. More details on both smartphones can be found over here.
