Apple Sells 13 Million iPhones Over The Weekend

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have sold a record 13 million units in its first weekend, according to a press release by Apple. This figure effectively overshadows last year’s iPhone 6 sales, which totaled 10 million in its first three days.

“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9.”

Reviews of the iPhone 6s have been generally positive, with critics raving about the new smart phone’s new features, such as 3D Touch, which is generally hailed as a groundbreaking feature, and Live Photos. It is also armed with a better cameras, a more powerful processor, and new built-in applications. There is one glaring difference compared to last year’s opening weekend though: the iPhone 6s debuted in mainland China, wherein its predecessor did not. It is worth noting that Apple’s iPhone market in the country is steadily growing, despite facing stiff competition from local manufacturers like Huawei and Xiaomi.

The new Apple’s flagship smart phone also debuted in Apple Stores in major cities worldwide, from New York to Beijing, to Sydney. The smart phone also rolled out in Canada, France, Germany, UK, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Puerto Rico, and New Zealand.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will then be available in 40 additional countries in October 9 and 130 by the end of the year.

Apart from its new features, the iPhone 6s also boasts a handful of new improvements from its predecessor, including a stronger, bend-resistant shell, and its faster A9 processor with two gigabytes of RAM. The phone is also available in several colors, most notably rose-gold, space gray, and gold.
