CUPERTINO, California―September 23, 2013―Apple® today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone® 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.
Let's say that's an average of $700 per phone. That's $6.3 BILLION in revenue. In a weekend. Not to mention all the cases, iTunes purchases and other stuff buyers may have picked up along the way.
It's a simply astonishing figure that doesn't even tell the full story. In Sydney today the iPhone 5S was sold out if you wanted to buy it outright off contract.
