Apple has unveiled their latest iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models at the September 9th event and the devices are available for sale starting from September 25th. According to the company’s press release, there are more than 13 million handsets are sold in a span of just 3 days. This a massive success for the company to breaks its previous record sale of more than 10 million handsets in the opening weekend sale of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple said, “Sales for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history.” He also added “Customer’s feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9.”

Earlier Foursquare has predicted that the foot traffic on the launch date will be 360 times more than the other Fridays. It also shared that the total sale on the launch weekend will cross 13 million units and surprisingly it came true.

Starting from October 9th, the latest iPhones will be available in 40 more countries including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Taiwan. In India, the device will be officially launched on October 16th along with Malaysia and Turkey. By the end of the year, the availability of the device will reach more than 130 countries.

For the official sale numbers upto September 26th, we need to wait until Apple releases Q4 results and for the sale numbers starting from September 27th, the numbers will be included in the Q1 results of 2016.

In the recently released smartphone market report, the Apple trails with 10% market share only next to the Samsung’s 19% share. With these record sale numbers, we can expect huge growth in Apple share in the next quarter report.
