Right when you’re in the middle of enjoying your latest iPhone comes an even newer, just-launched version of it. Bummer! The recently released iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus topped the first weekend sales record for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus by 3 million. A whopping 13 million pieces were sold worldwide in just three days.
The new iPhone features the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface with 3D Touch and Live Photos, which gives new life to still images. It’s no wonder why thousands of people camped outside Apple stores worldwide for it.
On its second wave of release this Oct. 9, 40 more countries including Mexico, Spain, and Taiwan will get to buy the new models. India, Malaysia, and Turkey are up next on Oct. 16 and about 130 other countries by the end of the year, hopefully including the Philippines.
Apple has been expected to sell an estimate of 78.4 million iPhones towards the end of the year. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook says in a press release, “We can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to [more] customers. The feedback is incredible.”
