9 Million iPhone 5S/5C Sold Within 3 Days

When it comes to new Apple products, massive sales are always recorded during for first week of release of these new products so its usually expected that sales will go above the charts.. However with the launch of iPhone 5S/5C last week, sales didn't just go above charts, it entered a new chart of its own.

iPhone 4 when it was launched sold out 4 million within 3 days of launch, iPhone 5 sold out 5 million during the first 3 days of launch but the iPhone 5S/5C sold out a massive 9 million devices.

This figure is just outstanding compared to other iPhone releases.

Not only was the selling of iPhone 5s/5c outstanding but also was the download of iOS 7 into supported devices. According to Apple, more than 200 million iOS 7 downloads were recorded within the days iOS 7 was released publicly to the world.

In the words of Tim Cook, “This is our best iPhone launch yet―more than nine million new iPhones sold―a new record for first weekend sales,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”

This means that no matter what people might think of Apple devices, the demands are always unexpectedly high.
