“Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We would like to thank all of our customers for making this our best launch ever, shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin.

As with previous years, the company also claims that demand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has been very high, as more orders will be fulfilled over the coming weeks. Apple announced last Monday that it processed four million first-day pre-orders on September 12.

Currently, shipping estimates for new iPhone 6 orders remains at 7-10 business days, while the iPhone 6 Plus is still showing a shipping delay of 3-4 weeks. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will also be available in 20 more countries including Austria, Belgium, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and more on September 26.

iPhone6 :

- Bad screen aspect ratio - should be paper A6
- Too thin → Protruding camera, rather than longer battery life and flush lens
- Ugly antenna bands
- No OIS on basic model
- Base storage should be 32GB
- No wireless charging
- No iPhone 6C with all-plastic back
- No sapphire screen

What! Wow!

We're also forgetting - the iPhone 5s and 5c launched in China. The iPhone 6 and 6+ haven't even arrived there yet! Wow!

That is a lot of virtual Apple wallets out there now!

Took a look at them at a local Apple store. They look so much better in person and the 6 Plus looks a lot smaller than I was expecting. Very nice, if they keep the design for next year I know which one I will get. Still on my 5S on contract, I know a lot of people get a new one each year but I am still happy with my puny phone :)

Wasn't Steve's goal of selling the original iPhone 10 million units in an entire year? I still remember his 2007 keynote where he wanted to capture "just 1 percent of the market."

Samsung should make an ad showing how the S5 sold more than 10 million units the first weekend :rolleyes:
Sadly this is something even Samsung can't copy!
