Apple iPhone 6s on track to smash last year’s iPhone 6 record
The Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were unveiled only last week and will be released on September 25th, however, the duo of iOS flagships are already on their way to beat the record set by last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The information comes from no other source than Apple itself.
According to the Cupertino, California-based software giant, the 10 million pre orders recorded by the Apple iPhone 6 and its phablet sibling in their first week of 2014 is about to get sidelined by the 2015 iPhone models — the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
“Customer response to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been extremely positive and preorders this weekend were very strong around the world,” Apple said in a statement to CNBC.
“We are on pace to beat last year’s 10 million unit first-weekend record when the new iPhones go on sale September 25.”
If the assertions are true then Apple is right on track to justify the ordering of 90 million iPhone 6s/6s Plus copies from suppliers of which analysts believe that up to 80 million will be sold before January.
In 2014, the company was able to sell 74 million iPhone 6/6 Plus copies after they released the duo in September that year.
