“Customer response to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been incredibly positive, we can't wait to get our most advanced iPhones ever into customers’ hands starting this Friday,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iOS 9 is also off to an amazing start, on pace to be downloaded by more users than any other software release in Apple’s history.”
Apple said last week that the iPhone 6S pre-orders are set to reach 10 million in the first weekend. Why has Apple not announced that they reached that goal today?
The company has revealed a concrete number on the iOS 9 adoption. As of September 19, iOS 9 has been adopted by 50% of iDevices. This sets a new record.
The only really interesting piece of today's Apple press-release is the confirmation that the iPhone 6S will be on sale in Apple Stores for walk-in customers. Apple encourages customers to arrive early. The Apple Stores open at 8am local time. The lines have already formed at major Apple Stores.
Apple notes that the new iPhone 6S is available by reservation only in China, Hong Kong, Japan and US stores in tax-free states.
