Apple announced it has sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus model phones in just three days, setting a new record.
“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, in an Apple press release. “‘Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on Oct. 9.”
iOS 9, Apple’s mobile operating system, brings proactive assistance and improved Siri features.
It also offers more powerful built-in apps, a redesigned Notes app and an all-new News app that gives a different reading experience than the previous Apple operating systems.
Customers are encouraged to check the Apple Store app to receive updates on availability and estimated delivery dates.
“It’s amazing! The Apple Company has made a huge impact on phone carriers, despite the price of the phone. People really want quality and that’s what Apple is doing with these phones,” said Lonneisha Parker, fourth-year nursing student from St. Petersburg, Fla.
According to Apple, every customer who buys an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus at an Apple Retail Store will be offered free Personal Setup service, helping them customize their iPhone by setting up email, showing them new apps from the App Store and more, so they’ll be up and running with their new iPhone before they leave the store.
Customers can learn more about iOS 9 operating system and their new device through free workshops at all Apple retail stores worldwide.
The new iPhones are also available through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and additional carriers, and select Apple Authorized Resellers including Walmart, Best Buy, and Target.
