Apple has just kicked off its announcement event for the new iPads (and more). If you can't watch the live stream for yourself, we are here to bring you the news. Right off the top, Apple gave out some interesting numbers about the iPhone and iOS 7 launch. While CEO Tim Cook didn't break down the numbers too much, or elaborate, the opening weekend sales of the iPhone were impressive...

Seems that it is not so hard to fool certain people.

Don't read too much into that 9 million figure. That 9 million could also include sales of the 5, 4s and 4 as well. All of which are still doing pretty decent.

Thats very true and my question is "How many of those phones were actually sold to customers and not carriers". Here in my store; people have not been beating the door down to get either the 5c or 5s by any means. It seems to be that these number are a combo of all the iPhones which you pointed out.

That didn't address his question.
But regardless, customer or carrier, a sale is a sale.

It did. He's under the assumption that the 9M sales are from the 4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S. The PR article clearly states that it's only from the 5C and 5S.

Sales are sales. Sales to carriers are called shipments, not just "sales". Regardless of your perception of the sales, they've sold more than any other launch.

According to some news not only software is buggy but hardware also.

Why wouldn't you expect it to? Your running the newest OS on 3 year old hardware.

I'm always a little confused when Apple releases the numbers of their newest OS version penetration. Do they mean iOS 7 is on 64% of ALL iOS devices? Or do they mean iOS 7 is on 64% of iOS devices capable of upgrading to iOS 7? Clearly, the former would be more impressive. There's a big difference there & I've never gotten a conclusive answer on which one is the truth.

I saw a lot of people who upgraded to iOS 7 but quickly reverted back. I wonder if they're counting those in the numbers.

You are clearly not telling the truth considering there is no simple way to do that.
