The launch of the iPhone 5 was big, but somehow Apple has managed to top itself yet again. This weekend was the first weekend of sales for the iPhone 6, and unsurprisingly, it was another huge sales event for the Cupertino gadget merchants. Just how big was the sales event? Apple has sold 10 million iPhone 6 units in the first weekend of sales.
Of course, that was for both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, but still, that’s a lot of units moved. I suppose a lot of that can be attributed to the new iPhone model, which features a much larger phablet-type form factor, as well as the chance to buy a new iPhone to go with your traditional accessories. I suppose in this day and age it is amazing to sell 10 million of anything, let alone a phone, but considering Apple’s appeal and strong marketing, I’m a little surprised sales numbers weren’t higher.
Estimates for the first weekend were between 6.5 and low-teens in millions of sales, so this weekend is still nothing to sneeze at.Technorati Tags: 10 million sales for first iphone weekend, apple iphone, apple iphone 6, apple iphone 6 plus, apple sales, apple sells 10 million iphones, iphone, iphone 6, iphone 6 debut, iphone 6 plus
