The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus set new launch weekend sales record

Apple says it's sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models just three days after launch. That's a new record, beating the 10 million units sold in the launch weekend of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Customers are encouraged to check the Apple Store app or Apple.com to receive updates on availability and estimated delivery dates. Every customer who buys an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus at an Apple Retail Store will be offered free Personal Setup service, helping them customize their iPhone by setting up email, showing them new apps from the App Store and more, so they’ll be up and running with their new iPhone before they leave the store. 

Customers can also learn more about iOS 9 and their new device through free workshops at all Apple retail stores worldwide. In the US, the new iPhones are also available through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and additional carriers, and select Apple Authorized Resellers including Best Buy, Target and Walmart.
