iPhone 6: reservations and pre–orders top 10 million in China

Apple looks set for another huge iPhone opening weekend, with the news that Chinese pre–orders and network reservations of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus could have topped out at a whopping 10 million.

According to local media, Apple itself took one million pre-orders for new iPhones in just six hours on Friday, the day the devices were first added to its Chinese website.

That’s on top of nine million ‘reservations’ made via Chinese mobile networks. Word is that the huge China Mobile carrier has taken half of all the shipments of iPhones made into the Chinese mainland.

If these numbers are borne out over the weekend of October 17th, China could deliver as many sales as Apple managed in the nine countries where the handsets first hit shelves in September.

The tech giant now looks on course to post record quarterly iPhone sales, despite a series of issues with iOS 8 prompting a string of bad headlines.
