iPhone 5S & 5C Sales Top 9m

According to Apple, over 9 million iPhone 5c and 5s phones were sold in the first three days that they’ve been available, which is a new company record for the first weekend of sales. Compared to their last release of the iPhone 5, which sold 5 million handsets in the first weekend, it’s a vast improvement, and evidence that Apple created yet another product that consumers want. It should be noted, though, that the simultaneous iPhone 5s and 5c release across Asian markets – like China and Hong Kong – will have given the company a noticeable sales bump, and probably contributes to the extraordinarily high numbers of phones sold. The icing on the cake, for Apple, is that there are also now 200 million apple products that have updated to the latest iOS.
