Last year the iPhone 5S and 5C broke Apple’s previous record of opening weekend sales with over 9 million units sold.
We like to think that everyone in New Jersey went out and bought one.
This opening weekend, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus broke that record, with the opening weekend ringing up sales of over TEN million units.
AND not just in New Jersey! The iPhones were on sale here in the US, as well as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK and will be available in more than 20 additional countries on September 26, with another 115 countries by the end of the year.
“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.”
Boom! Shatter those records Tim!
Thinking of becoming one of those millions buying an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus? You’re currently looking at shipping estimates of 7-10 business days for the former, and 3-4 weeks for the latter.
