Apple sees ‘record number’ of overnight preorders for iPhone 6 lineup

iPhone 6 Featured

The iPhone 6 went up for preorder at 12:01 AM PST on Friday, September 12, and while AT&T’s CEO was quick to tout high numbers of their own, Apple has milestones of their own.

In a statement sent to Re/code, the Cupertino-based company confirmed that the iPhone 6 is indeed the sight of unprecedented desire from consumers, as the company has seen a “record number” of overnight preorders for the iPhone 6 lineup. Unfortunately, as is usual for this sort of thing at this stage in the game, no numbers have been provided.

An Apple representative said that the overnight sales of the new iPhones set a record, though Apple did not say how many have been sold.

“Response to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has been incredible with a record number of preorders overnight,” Apple told Re/code.

The iPhone 6 is currently sold-out across the board, with shipping dates pushed back by several weeks. However, if you’re still in the market for a device, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 seems to still be available.
