Apple’s ready to go to war against its competitors with reports claiming it sold millions of its newly launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
According to reports, Apple made a strong statement with its latest iPhone release last Friday (September 19).
Apple says it sold more than 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, a record for a new model, in the three days after the phones went on sale. A year ago, Apple Inc. said it had sold 9 million of the then-new iPhone 5C and 5S models. The iPhone is available in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the U.K. It will go on sale in 20 more countries on Sept. 26 and others by the end of the year.
