Iphone 6S Sales Higher
We did not realize that there would be that much demand still for Apple iPhone especially with Google andriod phone announcing 2 nexus phone with andriod 6.0 on top of the fact that this launch is for the “s” version of the previous model.
The 6s like the 5s and 4s before is more of a update in software and hardware with no major visible physical changes as such their sales are usually not that anticipated as say iPhone 7 which usually comes with a new look. We also know for a fact that the next model of iPhone would be launch next year around sept. if trends are to continue. This is why we are shocked that the opening weekend sales is 3 million units higher than that of the previous year where a new model upgrade from iPhone 5s to iPhone 6 is launched
“Apple® today announced it has sold more than 13 million new iPhone® 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models, a new record, just three days after launch. iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in more than 40 additional countries beginning October 9 including Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain and Taiwan. The new iPhones will be available in over 130 countries by the end of the year.” Source:http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2015/09/28Apple-Announces-Record-iPhone-6s-iPhone-6s-Plus-Sales.html
This might be because of the mutli touch interface that the new phone would bring compared to the iPhone 6. Still this means that while there are more competitors in the smart phone market, the brand of Apple is still high on the consumer minds.
