The iPhone sold nine million units in three days, though Apple won’t specify which model sold how much.
The sales frenzy surrounding Apple’s latest smartphone has proven to be brutal, with a man beaten unconscious while waiting in line as previously reported by The Inquisitr, and other acts of violence that rival the release of Grand Theft Auto 5. Hmmm, could the iPhone be leading to violence? We kid.
Regardless, the hype and excitement surrounding the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C have been so thick you could cut them with a knife, and Apple is raking in the profits.
Apple’s newest smartphones together outsold every iPhone they ever released before, though skeptics might be quick to point out that two different models outselling one isn’t exactly impressive. Nevertheless, Apple stocks rose six percent following the announcement that Apple has outstripped its own supply of the iPhones sold.
What may have contributed to the sales of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are that the iPhone 5S uses a fingerprint scanner built into the main button, which according to a video you’ll see by clicking here (NSFW), will also work with a nipple. The iPhone 5C is a less expensive model made with a plastic back, a first ever for Apple as they looked into ways to cut costs and pass the savings on to customers with a little less money.
Another one of the reasons for the record number of iPhones sold in the opening weekend was that Apple also changed their tactics, not allowing pre-orders for the devices and driving those sales on release day as they risked angering some and made everybody stand in line. As expected, they sold out quickly. Apple is working diligently to get more of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C to customers who weren’t so lucky this past weekend.
Apple’s projections show that the iPhone sales will continue to produce record profits up to $37 billion with the new models.
