Last month, BMO Capital Markets analyst Keith Bachman predicted that Apple could sell up to 189 million iPhones during the 2015 fiscal year. Taiwan-based DigiTimes, citing sources within the supply chain, corroborates that figure by claiming that Apple could sell up to 200 million iPhone 6 units in FY 2015.
On Thursday, October 2, it was reported that Chinese reservations for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus had reached 2 million in just six hours of availability. Now, the number is even more impressive.
Following the news that Apple has gained regulatory approval on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in China, the Cupertino-based company announced on Tuesday that the two smartphones will launch in the world’s most populous country on Friday, October 17. Apple will begin accepting iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders in China on Friday, October 10.
If you have even an ounce of common sense, you probably don’t need to be told this: please don’t bend the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at Apple Stores. Over the weekend, that’s exactly what a pair of British teenagers named Kylie and Danny did at an Apple Store in the United Kingdom. Even worse, they decided to make a video of the bending.
