Last year the iPhone 6 was a monster hit and swept all before it to breaking just about every smartphone sales record there is. Surely the only way was down for Apple and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? Not quite as Apple has just officially revealed that it shipped a whopping 13 million units of the new iPhone 6s range over the first three days of release.Yes, we are on the circle again as that is a record amount, three million more units than the amount of iPhone 6 units shipped last year. Apple has somehow once again managed to convince millions of people to buy a hugely expensive product that it merely an incremental update over the one they bought last year. Love or hate the company, it has created a marketing juggernaut.
"Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple's history," claimed Apple CEO Tim Cook. "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."Needless to say, no other company can get close to this kind of selling power and it seems as though Apple could well break its fourth quarter record set last year too. It is also worth mentioning that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are still not available in many markets.
