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.
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.
Quelle surprise, everybody likes the new iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Hardly shocking stuff as Apple could put out a feature phone with and i on the front of the name and win rave reviews (the general consensus so far has been 90%, 9 out of 10, that kind of stuff). The early reviews for Apple's new flagship devices are in and the general word is that both are very good handsets, with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 apparently a better choice than the iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple, rivals, and consumers all knew that the iPhone 6 launch would be huge and would likely crush all previous records. It has proven the case as Cupertino has released its figures for the pre-order stage of the iPhone 6 roll out (the device ships from September 18th) and the numbers are indeed huge. However, there is a trend that points to the larger iPhone 6 being more popular.
The biggest launch in smartphone history? Oh, that would be the current roll out of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple's latest and I presume greatest flagships. Expect sales records to tumble as rabid Apple fans tear themselves to pieces to get an iPhone, with millions upon millions expected to sell this weekend. The launch has actually been fraught with problems though, but despite that, both the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus are already selling out.
You watched Apple's iPhone 6 launch event, you are a long time iPhone fan, and you thought that you would like to replace your old iPhone for the latest and greatest. As the clock strikes midnight tonight you will be able to pre-order the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and have it on September 18th. However, how do you ensure that you are doing everything right when trading in your old iPhone, and keeping your data safe?
