There seems to be no end to Apple's iPhone success, the company just announced that sales of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models broke the 10 million during the launch weekend.
That's a million more than the launch weekend sales of last year's iPhone 5s and 5c.
Apple® today announced it has sold over 10 million new iPhone® 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, a new record, just three days after the launch on September 19. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK and will be available in more than 20 additional countries on September 26. The new iPhones will be available in 115 countries by the end of the year.
“Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We would like to thank all of our customers for making this our best launch ever, shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin. While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.”
In related news, a new hoax is making the round that iOS 8 delivers support for iWave, a feature that supposedly lets you rapidly recharge your phone by putting it in the microwave. A search on Twitter reveals some people were gullible enough to try it.
