Apple outpaces Samsung in Korea, but is that he full story?
By Luke Jones on Monday October 27, 2014

At the end of last week Samsung revealed that it had shifted 4.5 million units of the Galaxy Note 4 in its first month on release in South Korea and China. That is a fantastic number that makes the Note 4 a bon-a-fide success, however it is a number that pales against Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales. Yes, here's another Samsung vs. Apple comparison, but these two are competing so how one does against the other is always relevant.

20 million iPhone 6 pre-orders in China
By Luke Jones on Monday October 13, 2014

When reservations for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reached 2 million in China last week, I suggested that when the devices were made available for pre-order in the country they may get close to matching the figures posted during their earlier initial launch in nine countries. Well, how very wrong I was as the new handsets have been snapped up in unprecedented numbers in China with up to 20 million units being bought.

Apple to sell 200 million iPhone 6 units in 2015?
By Luke Jones on Tuesday October 07, 2014

Apple?s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been selling well. Actually, that's an understatement as they have been breaking records and are set to go through the roof again when launched in China and India later this month. However, how well Apple's flagship device does through a launch period is only part of the story as the iPhone has always had fantastic staying power. The iPhone 6 could take that to another level.

UPDATE: 4 million "reserve" the iPhone 6 in China
By Luke Jones on Friday October 03, 2014

There are some out there who believe Apple could release anything and it would be a hit. The company has been under the microscope over the last week because of the "bendgate" saga where iPhone 6 devices were breaking under a bit of stress. That, you may have thought, would slow up the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on their quest for global domination, but it hasn't. In fact things just get better as China is entering the fray and consumers in the country do not seem put off in the least.

iPhone 6 to arrive in China on October 10th
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 30, 2014

Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus around the world over the last two weeks and "Bendgate" aside the smartphone has been a huge success. The handset shifted 10 million units in three days, a record amount, but that number could have been higher. Apple would have ideally liked to have launched the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in China too, but the country put a halt to its release until it passed regulatory approval.

Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch and roll out went swimmingly with the handsets racking up over 10 million unit sales over their first three days on release. Apple will be delighted, but there was a problem with China, with the country not passing the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to be sold in the country. That meant Cupertino was stripped of the chance of selling even more units by rolling out in the world?s biggest smartphone market.

Apple launched the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last week and it was a massive roll out. The company had millions of devices ready to ship, but it was still not enough as the handset smashed records and have ultimately sold out.

Apple. iPhone. Record. Sales. Launch. These are all words that tend to go hand in hand whenever Cupertino releases a new version of its all-conquering smartphone. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have teamed up to create another sales record for their opening weekend, beating last year's iPhone 5s/5c roll out.

A little perspective is always a good thing, so while some of us are waiting to buy the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and thinking, "Gee, this is expensive," what about the guys and girls who make the device. A report today shows how much the average iPhone 6 manufacturer gets paid, and how much it would cost them to purchase Apple's latest smartphone.
