Apple has revealed that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which were unveiled only a week ago are well within track to smash last year’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in terms of pre orders.
The Cupertino-based smartphone company made this known in a statement made available to CNBC. The company said the 10 million pre orders recorded by the Apple iPhone 6 and its phablet in the first week of release in 2014 is about to be bumped by the new models, which were unveiled in an elaborate event last week. This would mean that iPhone lovers are already responding well to the new phones.
“Customer response to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been extremely positive and preorders this weekend were very strong around the world,” the company said in the statement.
“We are on pace to beat last year’s 10 million unit first-weekend record when the new iPhones go on sale September 25.”
Analysts are of the view that 80 million copies of the iPhone 6s/6s Plus copies would be sold before the start of 2016.
Apple was able to sell 74 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus copies after both phones were released in September 2014.
