It’s a new record for Apple.
On Monday, Apple announced it sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models — a new record — just three days after launch.

Will they or won’t they? That’s the burning question today with regard to whether or not Apple will reveal how many new iPhones were preordered and sold over launch weekend.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus officially went on sale last Friday, September 25th.
In the past, Apple has on occasion dished on preorder totals the Monday following the official start of sales. So will that happen once more today? For now, we don’t know. What we do know, however, is that consumer interest in both iPhone 6s and iOS 9 is very, very high.

“In anticipation of the operating system update, developers across the world are readying ad-blocking applications in hopes they can cash in on the thirst for ad-free mobile browsing,” notes a WSJ report. “Millions of users already block ads on their desktop browsers and interest in the tools is growing, according to some reports. Mobile developers want a piece of the action.”

On Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook did more than just tout his company’s new flagship smartphone as the most advanced in the product line’s history. To Cook, the new iPhone 6s is the most advanced smartphone ever created.

The moment of truth has arrived. Apple is ready to take the stage and show the world what’s next.
As far as we can tell, however, the rumor mill has already figured out what to expect.
Later this morning, Apple will likely raise the curtain on iPhone 6s, watch OS 2, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, and — if there are any big “surprises” in store — possibly a new Apple TV.
