iPhone 6 Sets New Sales Record

Apple said it has sold more than 10 million new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, a new record, just three days after the launch on September 19.  In September 2013, Apple said it sold nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models in the three days after their launch. 

The iPhone 6 handsets are available in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the U.K. and will be available in more than 20 additional countries on September 26. The new iPhones will be available in 115 countries by the end of the year, Apple added.

“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. “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.” source: Apple statement
