In China, it takes Apple 6 hours to sell 1 million Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus units
posted by Alan F. / Oct 10, 2014, 10:10 AM
Before the official reservation period started, one online retailer in China, JD.com, had received 9 million pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The numbers show that Chinese iPhone users still prefer the larger iPhone 6 Plus by a thin margin. The latest figures from JD.com reveal that it has 4,580,620 iPhone 6 units and 4,734,639 iPhone 6 Plus units reserved for buyers.
The 4.7-inch Apple iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus will both launch in China, and in India, next Friday, October 17th. In the U.S., Apple says that it sold 10 million units of its new handsets over the launch weekend. Overall, in the U.S. Apple is believed to have sold 21 million units of the two phones.

It isn't really a "gap gate" issue seeing as how it was largely started to divert attention from Apple. I am more inclined to believe it is on purpose in the design because it is in the official documentation even for the last note phablet. If Apple had acknowledged the bending to be an on purpose design compromise then that would also have been less of a "gate" level issue.

"iboy" really? I own all platforms and don't have a favorite one, so don't be labeling me like any fanboy, I have an M8, LG G3, Nokia Lumia icon, 1520, BBZ10, iPhone 6, I like all of them in their own way, unlike you a samsung fanboy, Samsung and iPhone fanboys make me sick, with all the crap that has been going on with the gate stuff, why can you just enjoy your phone period instead of looking at the next person and judge them for what they use.

I cannot believe there is not one commentator out there who has NOT noticed, or even questioned it I agree 100 % If you started a contract in 2012 with the iPhone5, the 2014 iPhone 6 is a larger display iPhone 5 with Apple Pay. http://www.phonearena.com/phon
FYI Apple will receive 15c per transaction, thus NFC only inclusion into an iPhone
Apple pay needs ALL THREE: iPhone 6 / 6+; CREDIT /DEBIT card; NFC terminal, (if just one is missing old school cash or Credit / Debit
I mean is it necessary, or faster really to pay using your phone
Re iPhone 5 / iPhone 6 comparison remember 2 years separate these phone
Not so much a joke but here are 4 rules from " Aquisistion Rules" in a sci fi show which are ironic
12. Anything worth selling is worth selling twice
13. Anything worth doing is worth doing for money
82. A smart customer is not a good customer
105. Wise men don't lie, they just bend the truth

Very impressive. Wish other manufacturers had such demands and sales for their devices.

Other manufacturers can't because they throw spec wise everything they have each, and every release which won't even get the latest OS in 1.5-2 years. Apple does planned, incremental upgrades, and long OS upgrade paths (iPhone 4 gets iOS 7 and is 4 years old) with each release which makes the customers coming back.

Well, with each OS release, the customers come back because their phone stopped functioning or got crippled/bricked and so on. Also, other manufacturers do have this kind of demand and do sell more than this just as easily seeing as how a population of 1 billion can easily sustain that. It just doesn't get publicized like Apple news even if it has no real foundation in reality (for reference, check last years pre-orders of 5s phones in china and of their actual sales).

Says the village idiot who is obviously but hurt. Don't worry; just keep combining the sales of about 500 different phone models to 8 and only garner about 75% market share and see how stupid your argument is. They are more Kia's o the road than Benz's so what is your point? Last time I checked most smart phones competing with the iPhone cost about the same.
