The new iPhones managed to outdo even the top end of forecast sales by a further million, taking their total weekend sales to over 13 million.
Year on year, their weekend opening sales increased by an astounding 30% more than the iPhone 6 and 6 plus.
The rise in sales has been part attributed to Apple selling the iPhone in China, Apples second biggest market, on its debut weekend whereas it had limited the release to other select countries in previous years.
So far the phone has received universal acclaim with critics praising its new 3D touch feature and improved cameras.
From October 9th the iPhone 6s and 6s plus will be available in a further 40 countries, and 130 countries in total by the end of 2015.
Will you be getting the new iPhone 6s or 6s plus? Do you think Apple would have broken their record without China’s extra sales? Let us know below in the comments section
