The duo of Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus recently went on sale in 12 countries including the UK and the United States.
On Monday, Apple announced that the two iOS-powered machines have experienced phenomenal sales after seeing an overwhelming demand across the 12 markets. The United States software and hardware outfit revealed that it sold about 13 million copies of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones between Friday and Sunday 27th September.
“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a press statement. “Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9.”
The new Apple smartphones are notably sized in the same dimensions as their predecessors but came with improved camera, RAM capacity, CPU performance and battery life.
Last year’s iPhone 6 came with an 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM and Apple A8 processor but the newly released iPhone 6s has a far better 12-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, Apple A9 processor, and lastly, runs on an up-to-date version of iPhone software known as iOS 9.
The Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are expected to become available in a total of 130 countries by the end of 2015.
