Apple sells 10 million iPhone 6 smartphones in three days

Apple has proudly announced that it has sold more than 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones in just three days after the new smartphones were made available in stores. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said the company would have sold more iPhone 6 devices if it had them stored before. Unfortunately this hints of iPhone 6 shortages on the market.

“Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook in a statement.

The new smartphone line is now available in the USA, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the United Kingdom. By the end of this week the new smartphone will be commercially available in 20 more countries and by the end of the year it will be sold in more than 115 countries.

The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, respectively, giving Apple users a choice between smaller and larger displays, a feature now common for Android users. Pricing starts at USD 199 for the iPhone 6 with 16 GB of storage and reaches USD 499 for the iPhone 6 Plus with 128 GB of on-board memory. Unfortunately, depending on where you live and fluctuating currency exchange rates, you may end up paying more (or hopefully less).

Nevertheless the iPhone 6 launch seems to be the most successful launch Apple has ever had.
