Apple is reporting that by Monday the 28th of September, they had sold more than 13 million iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models in the 12 markets where the handsets are available. Last year’s iPhone 6 first-weekend sales report did not include sales in China and this report does.
Apple’s crystal ball was right on the money, and the company once again broke records with opening weekend sales for its two new flagships.
On Monday, the company said the devices will be available in 40 additional markets October 9 including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Taiwan.

The comparison to last year’s iPhone sales, however, is not apples-to-apples, Ives said. The first weekend sales figures have easily destroyed the already-impressive performance of last year’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Indeed, the iPhone 6S has taken the throne from the iPhone 6 Plus and demonstrated that Apple really knows that it’s doing.
The extra 3 million models sold can be attributed to a whole host of factors but the biggest one is the simultaneous launch in China. They feature a 64-bit Apple A9 processor, 12-megapixel iSight rear camera, 7000 series aluminium chassis and 16GB, 32GB or 64GB storage options.
Apple’s upgrade program also debuted alongside the 6s, which allows users to receive a new iPhone each year, regardless of their carrier, for monthly installments starting at $32.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bring a powerful new dimension to iPhone’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface with 3D Touch, which senses how deeply you press the display, letting you do essential things more quickly and simply. In its first weekend, economic giants Japan, Hong Kong, the USA, and China got first dibs, helping boost the sales relatively higher.
