How many new iPhones have sold so far?

iphone 6


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.





How many iPhone 6 and 6 Plus pre-order sales?

Did you guys pre-order an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? You were (unsurprisingly) not alone in doing so! Wanna take a guess as to how many other people around the world made sure they would get their hands on a new iPhone?


In 2012, there were 2 million pre-order sales for the iPhone 5, and that’s the record, so that should give you some kind of indication. Or does it? How about… double that?


Apple has announced that it processed over 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus pre-orders. Nice!


Direct from the Sauce:


“iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are better in every way, and we are thrilled customers love them as much as we do,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “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.”

Both new models will be released in Apple retail stores at 8am this Friday, September the 19th.






iPhone 6 Pre-orders info




Thinking of Pre-ordering the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? There’s only a few more hours to go, yo!


This year you won’t have to wait for your shiny new iPhone to be shipped to your address, as Apple is allowing pre-orders to be picked up in most of their retail stores from 8am on the release day – September 19th. Shiny iPhone. Hot little hands. Days Away.


You can of course choose to get your new iPhone shipped (for free, yay) to your address instead, if that’s what you prefer.


Or you can just go ahead with your fingers crossed and purchase the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in-store at 8am on the 19th. There hasn’t been much in the way of information on the availability of either model, and how long supplies will last on either, but we’ll be letting you know anything we hear, when we hear it! We would suggest pre-ordering if at all possible.


In-store there will most likely be two lines- those purchasing, and those picking up.


Pre-orders for both models of the iPhone 6 begin tonight at 12:01pm. One minute past midnight, tonight. Mere hours, guys. Good luck! Remember, if you need some cash to make the iPhone 6 upgrade work for you – hit us up! Sell your old stinky iPhone for CashMoney!! 





The iPhone 6!




It’s finally here! The iPhone 6. AND iPhone 6 Plus. Fancy. Here’s what you need to know about the new iPhone models:


They look remarkably similar to the leaks we’ve seen in the past few weeks with rounded edges, and extended camera lens. The power button is indeed positioned on the upper right hand side and both iPhones are what we expected for screen size and a lot thinner than their predecessors. The iPhone 6 sits pretty at 4.7 inch screen size and 6.9mm thin and the iPhone 6 Plus is 5.5 inch screen size and just 7.1mm thin. For comparison’s sake, the iPhone 5S has a 4 inch screen size and is 7.6mm thin.


Combine this larger screen size with the screen resolution and it sounds pretty magic. Both models have what Apple calls ‘Retina HD Display’, with the iPhone 6 featuring a 1334 x 750 display at 326 pixels-per-inch while the iPhone 6 Plus features a 1920 x 1080 display at 401 ppi.


The iPhone 6 has more than 1 million pixels. The iPhone 6 ups it’s game here to 2 million pixels. According to Apple that’s 185% more pixels on the iPhone 6 Plus. Fewf. Good thing we like having lots of pixels.


There are updates to Apps to make one hand control easier and to take advantage of the extra space the screen size brings – such as two tone display for email, messages, etc.


The iPhone 6 models have a next generation A8 chip, 2 billion transistors and 64-bit support. 25% faster CPU performance. Which means, basically, that it’ll be faster and better.


The battery will be equal or better than the iPhone 5S,  for example, watching video you’ll get 10 hours on the 5S, 11 on the iPhone 6 and 14 on the iPhone 6 Plus.


The iPhone 6 models come with a barometer that measures relative elevation from air pressure, which, in combination with the M8 chip will make fitness applications tell accurately when your cycling/walking/running/ as well as being able to estimate distance/steps/elevation. This will all be recorded in the Health app that comes with iOS 8, of course.


The cameras on both models come equipped with an ‘isight’ sensor that will apparently help take better photos. It’s a 8MP iSight camera, 1.5µ pixels, ƒ/2.2 aperture that will focus almost twice as fast, has advanced face detection, tone mapping, and noise reduction. Panorama photo capability will improve with up to 43 mexapixel photos and a gyroscope means stitching is seamless.


The iPhone 6 has image stabilization, however the iPhone 6 Plus again steps it up to include optical image stabilization. Which is fancy, and will make your photos better and cleaner.


Video will be shot at 1080p at 30fps and 60fps, and slo-mo at 240fps (holy moly), up from 120fps on the 5s. The iPhone 6 models will both include time lapse photography capability.


The front facing ‘FaceTime’ camera has also been improved with f2.2 aperture that lets in 81% more light. It also has improved face detection and burst selfie mode, single shot HDR and HDR in FaceTime video.


The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus come in Gold, Silver and Space Gray. All in all, its a nice, rounded update with no surprises but improvements that will make the user experience a better one. When we get our hands on one we’ll let you know about how the larger screen sizes feel, and how noticeably faster and better performing the new models are.


Pricing!  The iPhone 6 – 16GB/64GB/128GB for $199/$299/$399.




The iPhone 6 Plus – $299/$399/$499 for 16GB/64GB/128GB


Both models will be released come September 19 and its preferred operating system, iOS 8, launches September 17th. BUT take note- you can preorder starting September 12.


P.S.  Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are the voices behind the new ads!





The Apple announcement!



This morning, at 10:00 AM Pacific time, Tim Cook took to the stage at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of De Anza College in Cupertino.


Over almost 2 hours, we were introduced to two new models of iPhone, a new service in ApplePay and the Apple Watch. A lot of rumors were confirmed, some were seen to be false (bye easy to type iWatch) and a raft of new services not foreseen were revealed.


The live stream was not the best thing anyone’s ever seen, far from it actually, from consistent pauses and breakdowns in the streaming video, to the addition of a lovely Chinese translator (we’re assuming?) cutting in over Tim Cook’s sentences. It seemed to work itself out after about 40 minutes thank goodness, but not before Twitter was set on fire annihilating Apple for being unable to use simple streaming technology.


But, it worked itself out. Shout out to the guys over at MacRumors for live blogging so we could understand anything we missed! We were introduced to the two models of the iPhone 6 – the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. They are, as rumored, a 4.7 inch model and 5.5 inch model respectively. They both have a bunch of updates and improvements and we’ll delve into them in a little bit in our detailed iPhone 6 blog post.


We had confirmation of NFC capabilities with ApplePay, aiming to make payment transactions in a bunch of online and in-store retailers all over the US simpler and more secure.


Then; One more thing!





Those magic words that we haven’t heard in a while! That one more thing? Nope, not the iWatch. Natch. It’s the Apple Watch. And it’s so very pretty! And functional! And innovative, and useful. We’ll be going into far more detail in our Apple Watch blog post coming soon. But all you need to know for right now? There are two sizes and three models – the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport, and the Apple watch Edition. They’ll be coming in early 2015, they’re highly customizable, they start at $349, and you’ll probably want one.


Tim Cook ended the event with a performance by U2 and the announcement of their new Album ‘Songs of Innocence’. And Apple just made the album free to all half a billion iTunes users!


We’ll be bringing you the details of both models of the iPhone 6, Apple Pay and Apple Watch shortly.

Purported iPhone 6 videos

We got presents for you guys! Happy-weekend-before-the-iPhone-6-announcement-present!


The following videos are of purported parts, shells and casing of the highly anticipated iPhone 6, which will be announced beside the iWatch on September 9th in San Francisco.


Youtube user Rozetked has uploaded a video showing the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 in detail.




Whilst you can see alleged footage of the casing and purported components of the 5.5 inch model below, released by




Lastly, below we have the newest video allegedly showing the iPhone 6 uploaded onto Weibo yesterday:




Apple Media event on September 9th is confirmed!

Thanks to the lovely guys over at The Loop, we have for you the official invitation to the upcoming Apple media event – confirming that a big announcement will be made by Apple on September 9th.


The event is highly anticipated and expected to be unveiling two new models of the iPhone 6 and their new wearable tech product, currently referred to as the iWatch.


The invitations carry the tagline “Wish we could say more.”



The event will take place at 10:00 AM Pacific Time at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of De Anza College in Cupertino.


The Flint center hasn’t been used by Apple for a long time, but is the same location where Steve Jobs introduced the original Mac 30 years ago and holds a lot more people than the usual venues Apple uses for it’s announcements. Apple seems to be building a huge, highly guarded structure on the campus in preparation for the announcement on the 9th.


We sense something major coming this way…


It hasn’t been confirmed if Apple will be streaming the event or not ( we hope so) but we will keep you up to date to everything we know when we know it!


11 days 15 hours 35 minutes until the unveiling!
