iPhone 6S & 6S+ Break Apple Records!

Following the launch of Apple’s iPhone 6S and 6S+, the tech giants have confirmed these devices have broken all their previous mobile phone sales records. More than 13 million units were sold worldwide within the first three days, beating last year’s iPhone 6 & 6+ by 3 million units!

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

However, it should be noted that this year’s iPhone launch included sales in China, whereas the previous launch commenced a month later in China.
