iPhone 6S Breaks Sales Records With 13 Million Sold in Three Days

Apple's new smartphone line is off to hot start, outperforming the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5.


The Pope's journey to the United States last week might have delayed some iPhone 6S shipments, but sales of the new smartphone line were stronger than ever. Apple has announced that it sold a record 13 million new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus phones in the three days following their release on September 25.

That's up from 10 million for the iPhone 6 and 9 million for the iPhone 5 during their launch weekends in 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Sales are expected to grow soon, as the new phones will be available in 40 more countries, including Mexico, Russia, Spain, and Taiwan, starting October 9. By the end of the year, the new iPhone 6 models will be available in more than 130 countries around the world.

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were announced earlier this month. One of the biggest new features for the phones is 3D Touch, which Apple is calling the next evolution of multi-touch input.
