Pastrand traditia anilor trecuti privind divulgarea cifrelor de vanzari, compania Apple a anuntat in cursul acestei zile ca a vandut 10 milioane de iPhone 6 si iPhone 6 Plus in doar 3 zile, weekend-ul lansarii. Anuntul vine la doar o saptamana de zile distanta dupa ce Apple anunta ca 4 milioane de unitati ale iPhone 6 si iPhone 6 Plus au fost precomandate de catre clientii sai in doar 24 de ore de disponibilitate.
Cifra anuntata astazi este usor mai mare decat cea inregistrata in weekend-ul lansarii iPhone 5S si iPhone 5C, atunci Apple comercializand 9 milioane de unitati. Diferenta mica este data de faptul ca acum China nu a facut parte din primul val de lansari pentru iPhone 6 si iPhone 6 Plus, compania Apple nereusind sa primeasca la timp toate certificarile necesare pentru a comercializa terminalele in aceasta tara.
iPhone 6 si iPhone 6 Plus au fost disponibile in cantitati limitate chiar din ziua deschierii sesiunii de precomenzi, stocul pentru cel din urma epuizandu-se in doar o ora de disponibilitate. Problema aceasta privind stocurile a existat in fiecare an pentru compania Apple, insa iata ca in ciuda sa se inregistreaza vanzari din ce in ce mai maria pentru produsele celor din Cupertino.
