Apple Reveals Record iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus Pre-Order Figures

If you had a hard time trying to pre-order an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in the middle of the night last week, here’s why: you definitely weren’t the only person trying to pre-order the phones. In fact, Apple just announced that it received a record number of pre-orders for the devices while also revealing that supply is going to be a bit limited.

Apple said Monday that it received pre-orders for 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units within just 24 hours. To put that in perspective, Apple sold 9 million iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units the first entire weekend both devices were on sale. The company did not break down how many iPhone 6 units were pre-ordered and how many iPhone 6 Plus units were pre-ordered individually.

“Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply and while a significant amount will be delivered to customers beginning on Friday and throughout September, many iPhone pre-orders are scheduled to be delivered in October,” Apple said in a release Monday. However, customers can still wait in line to pick up either device this Friday when it launches in the Apple Store and other retail locations.
