The numbers have spoken and the giant of the industry has once again exuberated the immense power vested in itself by claiming unprecedented figures. Before you lose the track of what we are trying to say here, the giants of the industry obviously refers to Apple and the numbers here are the pre order numbers of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Last week it was revealed that Apple had set a new milestone record with the pre order number of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, what was not known was exactly how many iPhones were ordered as the device went on sale at the weekend. However, the initial impressions from social media was that a lot of people were left frustrated at not having been able to pre order the device of their choice and therefore took to the platform to hit Apple with rants and F-bombs. However, that number looks like it was definitely a minority as Apple has officially confirmed that 4 million iPhones were pre ordered in 24 hours.
The announcement came from Tim Cook himself who said, “Pre-orders for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus set a new record for Apple, and we can’t wait to get our best iPhones yet into the hands of customers starting this Friday.”
The phones surpassed the record of 2 million pre orders for iPhone 5 and are expected to ship to the ones who pre-ordered them on September 19th. However, due to shipment issues there will be a sizeable number of people who will have to wait for the device maybe even as long as till October to get them. Majority of these are said to be iPhone 6 Plus which is scantily available.
