Setting New Record, Apple Sells 13 Million New iPhones Over Launch Weekend

Apple today revealed it sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models, a new record, three days after launch.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in more than 40 additional countries beginning October 9 including Italy, Mexico, and Russia, and in over 130 countries by the end of the year.

“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.

The latest iPhones bring new features such as 3D Touch and Live Photos, as well as hardware improvements like an A9 chip and 2GB of RAM. They start at $899 in Canada.

Last year, Apple sold 10 million iPhones over launch weekend. The year before that, nine million.

Apple posted revenue of $49.6 billion and net profit of $10.7 billion during its fiscal 2015 third quarter. During that quarter Apple sold more than 47 million iPhones, 11 million iPads, and nearly five million Macs.
