iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Could Set New Sales Record

Iphone 6s new

Apple recently announced the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus which look remarkably similar to the previous models. Despite this, the latest handsets feature a faster processor, 3D Touch sensors and a new Rose Gold finish. While critics weren’t overly enamored with the minor tweaks, it seems consumers are desperate to buy either handset and on course to set a new sales record. In an interview with PCMag, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller, said:

“Customer response to iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been extremely positive and pre-orders this weekend were very strong around the world,”

“As many customers noticed, the online demand for iPhone 6s Plus has been exceptionally strong and exceeded our own forecasts for the pre-order period,”

“We are working to catch up as quickly as we can, and we will have iPhone 6s Plus as well as iPhone 6s units available at Apple retail stores when they open next Friday.”

While Apple didn’t release any specific data, early indications predict sales in excess of 10 million and their initial launch stock has already sold out. This occurred within a few days and it’s mind-blowing to see figures of this magnitude. In all honesty, I would have expected Apple’s appeal to have curtailed off after so many releases. Nevertheless, if the statistics are correct and Apple continues on its current sales rate, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will become the most successful launch in history.

Thank you PCMag for providing us with this information.

    Well, think of it this way:
    4 and 4S users are now looking for alternatives: Their phones are slowing down, and their storage is filling with heavy updates. Also, the lack of newer iOS updates will cause some to upgrade.
    5 and 5S users were a bit better off than the 4 users. In fact, they would most likely wait for the 6S, as they would have more time with their phone for it to mature, and they would receive new hardware features not overly enticing the 6’s huge price.
    5C users could actually be fearing the fact that their limited storage and aging chips will mean they won’t be legible for iOS updates after 9.
    Android users displeased with ageing phones and OSes and wanting to use technologies such as the Force touch screen or have an all metal body will switch.
    Fashion and branding also comes into play. Europe in particular has seen Apple products’ growth rise purely because of it’s aesthetic. So these users will probably enjoy the Rose Gold design, aswell as the other designs.
    Asia’s market is also growing so…
    10 million pre-orders was to be expected…
