Apple says iPhone 6S and 6S Plus break sales records

Apple logoApple announced today that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus have sold a total of 13 million units in their first weekend, continuing the company's tradition of outdoing the previous year's sales every time it introduces a new iPhone model.

There are a few factors that contribute to the increased sales. First, Apple had another week to rack up online preorders ahead of the iPhone's first weekend in stores—the phones usually launch about a week after preorders begin, but this year there were two weeks between the start of preorders and in-store availability. The devices were also available in China, Apple's fastest-growing market, on launch day, something that wasn't true last year.

Apple also provided some details on the iPhone's launch in additional territories. On October 9, the 6S and 6S Plus will be available in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Maldives, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan.

On October 10, the phones will be available in Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. India, Malaysia, and Turkey will follow on October 16, and the phones will be in "over 130 countries" by the end of the year.
