Foursquare: Up to 15 million Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus units will sell this weekend

Foursquare: Up to 15 million Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus units will sell this weekend
According to estimates from Foursquare, Apple will sell 13 million to 15 million Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus units during this launch weekend. That compares to the 10 million units of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus that were sold during last year's launch weekend. There was some concern that with New York City responsible for three of the four top selling locations in the U.S. during last year's launch weekend, the visit to the Big Apple by Pope Francis could disrupt iPhone sales. But Foursquare says that Apple iPhone fans should not worry about any issues pertaining to the Pope's visit.

Last year's opening weekend of sales was led by the Apple Store on Market Street in San Francisco. After that location, it was all New York as Apple Stores at Fifth Avenue, West 14th Street and Soho rang up the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in big numbers. Sales this weekend are expected to be outstanding. According to Foursquare COO Jeff Glueck, iPhone purchases from Friday through Sunday will rise 360% from the number sold over the last 12 weeks.

Overseas, pre-orders from China have been strong and one analyst, FBR's Daniel Ives, expects 77 million iPhones to be sold during the current quarter, which ends in December and includes the holiday shopping season. Last year, Apple sold a record 74.5 million units during the same period, a record that Ives expects will be broken this year. While the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus drove sales in 2014, the 3D Touch feature, the improved cameras, and the new Rose Gold color all should drive sales higher this year.

Thanks for the tip!

If Android isnt what people claim it is (better, more fluid, no battery drain, UI is modern, etc) and its still got it's annoyances from when I tried 2 years ago - I'll be part of that 15mil. But my wife is defenatly getting 6s

If you want to try android then I recommend you to try out Moto X Style/Pure. And if you live in USA then there is no other better android phone to use than Moto X. No s**tty software, no carrier bloatware, pure android at its best. And its price is so low for a such a great phone. Save 300-400 dollors and use that money to buy iPhone 7 next year. At least that's what I'm going to do.

So you talk so much sh-t about Apple and the iPhone and you're getting it next year? You are one of the dumbest trolls I've ever seen on the internet.

15. Kumar123 unregistered

Oh, Smurf you are still butthurt from last time. he he he. So much anger towards me. Ha ha ha. The way you personally attacking me shows that you are still sour from last time. Keep trying. :) "So you talk so much sh-t about Apple and the iPhone and you're getting it next year?". Yep One sentence is all you need to decide who is the dumbest trolls here ( That's you BTW if your small brain still can't figure it out). Show me when I talked so much Sh-t about Apple and iPhone. Since I talk Soooo much Sh-t about apple it shouldn't be that hard to find few example right? I'll be waiting. Love you, ;)

This is like every analyst's expectation on every iPhone ever. Miraculously, they all turned pretty accurate.
