First Weekend iPhone Sales Top 9M, Sets New RecordMon, Sep 23, 2013 - 8:01 PM
Apple’s stock soured a bit immediately after the iPhone 5S and 5C announcement so perhaps investors felt like the offerings didn’t meet the high expectations. It doesn’t seem like customers felt that way. The stock rebounded today on Apple’s news that it had sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and 5c models. This just a scant three days after the launch. Perhaps if there had been more availability of the gold model, it would’ve been even higher since it seemed to the most in demand, yet shortest in supply. They also announced that the newly released iOS 7 as been downloaded over 200 million times, breaking another record for being the fastest software upgrade in history – even though it has met with mixed reviews. It probably didn’t hurt that they offered up the iWork for iOS free for purchasers of new hardware.
