Big news! After bringing in more than 4 million pre-orders and landing in stores this past Friday, Apple‘s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sold more than 10 million units over the course of its opening weekend. Exceeding last year’s opening weekend sales of 9 million units for the iPhone 5s, a new record for the tech company was set. Check out what Apple CEO Tim Cook said in regards to the numbers:
‘Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier. 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.’
It is also interesting to note that many analysts pointed out the sales are likely indicative of production and supply, as Apple has vastly greater quantities of its latest smartphone available. What do you think? Be sure to let us know in the comment section!
