Apple just announced that the company recorded 4 million pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple sold record-breaking 4 million iPhone 6 in first 24 hours
Apple landed yet another sales record for the new iPhone. The company just announced that customers pre-ordered 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the first 24 hours. The iPhone 5 topped 2 million in the first 24 hours. Last year Apple said that the company sold 9 million iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in the first weekend.
Given that number it appears the iPhone 6 is off to a slightly better start, but not dramatically higher than the iPhone 5S performed last year.
Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply and while a significant amount will be delivered to customers beginning on Friday and throughout September, many iPhone pre-orders are scheduled to be delivered in October. Additional supply of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available to walk-in customers on Friday, September 19 at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple retail stores.
“iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are better in every way, and we are thrilled customers love them as much as we do,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Pre-orders for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus set a new record for Apple, and we can’t wait to get our best iPhones yet into the hands of customers starting this Friday.”
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK beginning this Friday, September 19 and in more than 20 additional countries beginning on Friday, September 26 including Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.
