(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Apple broke records last week with the launch of its new iPhone, selling more than 4 million iPhone 6s in the first 24 hours of its release, announced the tech giant on Monday.
According to the Huffington Post, the larger 5.5-inch device was out of stock within hours of its unveiling. In comparison, the iPhone 5 received two million pre-orders when it was announced in 2012, with the iPhone 5S and 5C reaching sales of over 9 million its first three days.
Both versions of the iPhone 6 will be available this Friday, though Apple noted that many will not receive their pre-ordered devices until October due to the massive amounts of backorders.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus features Apple’s new A8 chip, Apple Pay, and the new iOS 8.
