iPhone 6 sales exceed 10 million over first weekend

iphone-6-side-time-lapse-photoApple says they have sold over 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones over the weekend – about 1 million more units than iPhone 5C and iPhone 5s released last year. The sales number reflects sales of the phone from September 19 through September 21 in US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.

But Apple says they could have sold even more units this weekend if they had a greater number of iPhone 6 models on hand. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said, “While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.”

And in China, one of Apple’s biggest markets, the release of the iPhone 6 models have been delayed because the phone has yet to have been given a license to operate on a crucial network there.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were officially announced on September 9, featuring larger displays, second generation 64-bit architecture, the latest Apple operating system iOS 8, and the Apple Pay system for quick checkout.

The iPhone 6 (4.7-inch screen) is priced at $199 with 16GB storage, and the larger iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inch screen) is priced at $299 with 16GB storage.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will launch in 20 additional countries on September 26, and by the end of this year will be available in 115 countries, according to Apple.
