Apple has sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models during their opening weekend on sale – a new record for the company.
This compares to the previous record of 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets sold three days after going on sale last year.
The iPhone 6s (pictured left) and 6s Plus (pictured right) were made available in 12 countries, including the UK, last Friday. They will go on sale in more than 40 countries from October 9, with more than 130 selling the devices by the end of the year.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said: “Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history, Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos.
