The iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c are the hottest commodities in the smartphone market at the moment, as Apple claims it has sold over 9 million units since it’s release.
Apple says the two new models gave it its strongest iPhone launch ever. The company began selling the low-cost 5C and top-of-the-line 5S on Friday.
The company says demand for iPhone 5s has exceeded the initial supply, and many online orders are scheduled to be shipped in the coming weeks.
“This is our best iPhone launch yet―more than nine million new iPhones sold―a new record for first weekend sales,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly.”
“We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”
Wall Street hadn’t been enthusiastic about the new models, which were unveiled earlier this month.
