Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders are on a record setting pace

Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus pre-orders are on a record setting pace
On Saturday, pre-orders for the new Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus began, and according to Apple, reservations for both handsets are at a record-setting pace. When the new iPhones are actually released on September 25th (a week from this coming Friday), Apple says it now expects to top the 10 million in first-weekend sales it rang up last year.

Last year's iPhone sales received a boost from the larger 4.7-inch screen used on the Apple iPhone 6, and the introduction of Apple's first phablet, the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus. The larger screens offered by Apple led to the return to iOS by many consumers who had switched to Android handsets with 5-inch and larger displays.


This year, new sales will be driven by the 3D Touch feature that allows the screen to differentiate between a light tap, a regular tap and a stronger tap. The rear camera is now 12MP and shoots 4K video, and the front-facing 5MP camera uses the screen as a flash. 2GB of RAM is apparently inside, along with the A9 chipset. The new Rose Gold color option has already proven to be a hit as the longest wait times for shipping (3 to 4 weeks) are mostly being seen for different versions of the Rose Gold colored Apple iPhone 6s Plus.

Thanks for the tip!

Do NOT forget that Last year China was not in the list but this year they are in... Over 2 billion people could pre-order but just 10 million have done that in 12 countries.

People on phonearena hope every year to have the ultimate flagship with ultimate specs. They end up getting a slide show hot plate. I love Android far more but will admit the Android phones that came out this year suck ass and barely keep up with the iPhone 6.

They actually did not. The iPhone 6 performs far Better in real performance than both of those devices. And it's a year old.

Real performance? App open faster on last gen android phone than iphone 6. Camera is better also. Better battery life. More memory option. Better screen. All this mean its dont perform better. Also software update did not break those phone.. So sorry.

Because an App opening faster is the ultimate measure of performance? THAT is the dumbest thing I've heard all day.

And you're a Samsung fanboy? Soooooo you haven't used the Note 4 or 5? None of the S6s? Even the Note 3 and S5 beat the iPhone 6 in battery life and the S5 even won in photos. So either you're a liar, you're a liar or you're a...liar.

not on the band wagon, but the average salary of a Chinese citizen is only $9,000 US per year-even with 1.4 billion (not over 2 billion as you stated) people in the country probably can't afford. Do the math! More important things on the list of things to get

This year yes. Last year no. Apple do this every year they open up new market to keep looking like they have higher sale in current market. they are in fact slowly loosing market share in current market so those new market help them look better.

Not only that, iphone is significantly more expensive in China than in US. iphone 6s with 16GB storage cost $828 in China compared to $650 in US. Poorer Chinese people have to pay more to get Iphone (which ironically is made by sweat of Chinese workers at Foxconn).

all this is are the people with free iphone upgrades each year and people with no idea about the phone and will complain about battery lasting 6 hours because they had no idea

It should be noted that China is a part of this years launch, whereas last year Apple released the 6/6 Plus at a later time in that region. Read somewhere the new Rose Gold color is extremely popular on the pre-orders there for some reason. I personally don't expect the 6s/6s Plus to outsell the 6/6 Plus, but Apple always surprises the market. I'm holding out for the iPhone 7 since I can't stand the design of the back.

The iPhone sells well because the iPhone is a very high quality product. It does what it needs to well. Does it have the best specs? No, and it doesn't need to. Why? Because it runs a mobile OS that is very well optimized on the hardware it runs on. Without a doubt, the iPhone is the best real world performing smartphone in the world. Nexus 5 is the only phone that matched in terms of fluidity and consistent performance. TLDR: IPhones sell well because they are great products. People are "sheep" for quality products. All Apple haters look like foolish morons hating on this Company.

The iphone sell well because is as a very high quality marketing. Its do enuf. Should it have the best specs? Yes! Its not because you run on a mobile OS thats is very well optimized thats you should just have enuf you should have more than any other as you pay more.. IF i buy a ferrari i dont want it to be just like a honda civic. Whitout a doubt, the iPhone is the most over hyped smartphone in the world. You have to use a Nexus 5 to get matched in terms of fluidity and consistent performance. ( lol ) TLDR: Iphone sell well because of great marketing. Poeple are sheep for brand names. All apple haters look like brilliant human for hating this greedy company. Here i fixed what was wrong for you.

No, it's because they all looked in with no way to easy transfer all there music and apps and so on, like now if I was to buy the new tab s2 and like lie, to move all my apps that I paid for with Apple, they all on the tab if needed, but it's time to pay again, so it's better to just upgrade with apple If Samsung did a deal with Apple and Apple OS and app was offered on Samsung phones ther upgrade number will go down big time over night

Being that this is an S year and their are other Apple products to buy this fall, I think sales will be flat if you take away China. When you add China, the numbers will be around 12-13 million units.
