Apple has sold more than 13 million new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices in just three days after their launch, the company revealed. The Cupertino-based tech giant also revealed that it plans to launch both the models in more than 40 additional countries including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Taiwan beginning from October 9. Thus, the new iPhone models will be available in over 130 countries by the end of the year.
"Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple's history," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "Customers' feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can't wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9."
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bring a powerful new dimension to iPhone's revolutionary Multi-Touch interface with 3D Touch, which senses your finger's pressure sensitivity and letting you do essential things more quickly and simply. The new iPhones introduce Live Photos, which bring still images to life, transforming instants frozen in time into unforgettable living memories. Live Photos, 3D Touch, 12-megapixel iSight camera, five-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash and more are powered by the Apple-designed A9 chipset. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are designed with the strongest glass on any smartphone and 7000 series aluminium, the same alloy used in the aerospace industry, in gorgeous metallic finishes and also has been used by competitor Samsung's Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 5 models.
iOS 9 brings more intelligence to iPhone with proactive assistance, powerful search and improved Siri features, all the while protecting users' privacy. Built-in apps become more powerful with a redesigned Notes app, detailed transit information in Maps, and an all-new News app for the best news reading experience on any mobile device.
The foundation of iOS is even stronger with software updates that require less space to install and advanced security features to further protect your devices.
