So Apple set a new record by ringing up 10 million units of the new Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus over the three day launch weekend. How does this compare with other Apple launches, and the release of some of Samsung's Galaxy devices? Asymco's Horace Deidu put together a graph that measures the per day sales for these devices during pre-order and launch weekend periods.

For example, while the 10 million iPhone 6 units sold by Apple this past weekend set a cumulative record, on a per day basis the record belongs to the first day of the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus pre-order period. Apple tallied 4 million reservations that first day, which stands as the record for now. The launch weekend for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus resulted in 3.3 million units sold each day, good enough for second. That is followed by the 3 million units sold per day during the launch weekend for the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c. The Apple iPhone 5 pre-order is next followed by the Apple iPhone 5 launch weekend.

Looking at Apple's tablet launches, the Apple iPad 4 and Apple iPad mini (both Wi-Fi only versions), tied the average sales per day seen during the Apple iPad 3's opening weekend. The stats for the Samsung Galaxy S II through the Samsung Galaxy S5 show much lower per day sales. It took a month for the Samsung Galaxy S4, the fastest selling Android phone ever, to reach the 10 million sales mark scored by the two new iPhone 6 models in just three days.
