First Weekend iPhone Sales Top Nine Million, Sets New Record

 

CUPERTINO, California―September 23, 2013―Apple® today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone® 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history. Both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK. Demand for iPhone 5s has exceeded the initial supply, and many online orders are scheduled to be shipped in the coming weeks.

“This is our best iPhone launch yet―more than nine million new iPhones sold―a new record for first weekend sales,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”

Not really surprising to be honest, iPhones and Galaxy S phones seem to just keep getting more popular with every new launch.

Who the hell is buying all these phones?  Can't be anyone with half a brain...

This madness needs to stop. What sucks the most is that a large portion of those sales are coming from people with perfectly good iPhone 3/3s/4/4s/5/What ever the fuck elses. Just throwing a way money and depleting resources.



4 ≈ One

Take that, 3DS!

Yup, really impressive stuff. Every year its pretty much the same story, and it doesn't look like there any any signs they will be slowing down any time soon.

i will probably never understand it since most people i know use their powerful new phones only for stuff they can already do with the phone they have. most still use it only for little bit angry birds, little bit surfing and whatsapp.
