It is a given by now that when Apple launches a new iPhone the consumer base goes into overdrive and buys that device by the boatload. Indeed, any new iPhone flagship typically becomes the best-selling smartphone of the year within its first few weeks on sale. The iPhone 6 took this fevered buying into the stratosphere and it toppled a multitude of sales records.Naturally Apple now expects to better itself with the release of the iPhone 6s later this year. We already know the company will sell tens of millions of units of the handset through its first three months, the question really is how many. The iPhone 6 crushed opposition on its way to breaking 80 million unit sales during the 2014 holiday season and now Apple is planning to better that with the iPhone 6s. In fact Cupertino has told its supply chain to ready itself to be able to build 85 to 90 million units in preparation for the first three months of the iPhone 6s. That means the company plans to sell that many handsets from the release of the device until December 31st, according to the Wall Street Journal. That figure would surpass the sales of the iPhone 6 by some margin and make the iPhone 6s a massive success. We were going to ask our readers whether they think Apple can achieve this number, but we guess most people know that company can.
