iPhone 6S sales appear to be on track to smash previous sales records, after an executive from a U.S. mobile network claimed that pre–orders were outstripping those of new devices last year.
T–Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted, “That was fast. Here we go. Customers are pumped to get the new iPhone 6S, pre–orders up 30% over last year.”
Legere’s comments come after it was confirmed earlier this week that all iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models were sold out to those wanting delivery on launch day, September 25th. The devices now ship between September 29th and October 6th.
Apple has already said it believed that this year would be another record breaker. Last year. the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus shifted ten million units on their opening weekend, thanks to larger screen sizes and a new design.
While this year’s models look the same, new features such as an improved camera and 3D Touch are set to prove popular. It’s also likely that users who bought the smaller screen iPhone 5s two years ago are now at the end of their contract and looking to upgrade.
Apple will reveal official sales figures for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus at the start of next week.
