After releasing two new iPhone last week, Apple has reported that it has received more than 4 million pre-orders within first 24 hours and thus, has broken the prior initial weekend mobile sales records of all time.
Apple Inc. said, the demand for new iPhone 6 andiPhone 6 Plus has already exceeded the supply as the pre-order figure is too damn higher than ever. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple said, “Pre-orders for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus set a new record for Apple, and we can’t wait to get our best iPhones yet into the hands of customers starting this Friday.”
Apple plans to start selling iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on Friday and price starts at $199 with two year contact which is exactly same as previous year. As demand has broken all the records, supplies are being depleted rapidly. According to Apple, “While a significant amount will be delivered to customers beginning on Friday and throughout September, many iPhone pre-orders are scheduled to be delivered in October.”
For the very first time, Apple opens the pre-order for two new iPhones at the same time. Although last year, Apple released iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S at the same time, they took pre-orders for 5C only. That time, the company sold 2 million iPhone 5 in first 24 hours and 5 million within first opening week. Including iPhone 5C and 5S, Apple sold a total of 9 million devices during last year.
