It doesn’t come as a big surprise to anyone that Apple has broken a new record in sales. The recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have reached a record of 4 million preorders, since its launch on Friday last week. Apple has stated that they have received a demand for their new iPhones that have exceeded the initial preorder supply and there are many orders placed to be shipped in October.
Tim Cook, the Apple CEO says that:
“iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are better in every way, and we are thrilled customers love them as much as we do. Pre-orders for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus set a new record for Apple, and we can’t wait to get our best iPhones yet into the hands of customers starting this Friday.”
Apple sold last year 9 million iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in their launch weekend. That record broke the previous one that was of 5 million iPhone 5 sold on the launch weekend of 2012.
The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will launch this Friday and additional units will be available in the Apple stores and other retail partners. The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will arrive first in the US, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.
