Apple Smashes iPhone Sales Record

Apple Unveils iPhone 6s, World's 'Most Advanced' SmartphoneIt’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.

All told, there was ample hype surrounding the introduction of Apple’s new flagship smartphone. And pre-orders obviously didn’t disappoint.

Then again, we haven’t likely seen anything yet.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in more than 40 additional countries beginning October 9 including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Taiwan. The new iPhones will be available in over 130 countries by the end of the year.

“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “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.”
