Apple has a couple of new handsets out there in the wild, with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus newly released to select markets around the world.
“We are on pace to beat last year’s 10 million unit first-weekend record when the new iPhones go on sale September 25″, said Apple in a statement to CNBC earlier this month. This stunning sales figure far eclipses the previous $10 million one-weekend sales record Apple set a year ago.
Meanwhile, Cook has a year to think up his next trick: How to top the 13 million mark in the first three days with the iPhone 7. This year’s results benefited from the inclusion of the Chinese market, where regulatory problems delayed the gadget’s debut last year.
To put this astonishing number of iPhones sold in perspective, over the past three days, Apple has sold a total of 3,000 phones per minute, that amounts to 50 devices every single second. We have said that Apple is announcing the iPhone 6S sales numbers today.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are available in gold, silver, space gray and the new rose gold metallic finishes.
Moreover, iOS 9 brings more intelligence to iPhone with proactive assistance, powerful search and improved Siri features, all while protecting users’ privacy, the company said.
Apple also updated the camera of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus to 12-megapixel iSight camera which is now capable of shooting 4K videos.
Just a few weeks before the release of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, several experts gave their thoughts on the upcoming device, what they predicted was not good.
Though it may look the same as the old iPhone 6, the new model actually changes things considerably inside. Apple plans to make the iPhone 6s available in 130 countries by the end of 2015.
