Apple CEO Tim Cook has said he is ‘thrilled’ with the launch of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. However, the California tech giant has yet to say how many handsets it sold on the devices' opening weekend.

Speaking at Apple’s Palo Alto store, Cook said, “We've sold out of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in some stores, but we've got good supply there. You can see what's going on here this morning — I couldn't be happier.”

Apple always revealed how many phones it had sold on opening weekend, but refused to do so in 2016 with the launch of the iPhone 7.

Its decision not to say how many iPhone 8 models were snapped up is likely to be related to the fact that its headline–grabbing iPhone X is not available until 23rd October.

Once that device launches, Apple will doubtless have plenty to shout about. Despite its £999 starting price, the tenth anniversary iPhone promises to be a huge hit, thanks to its new look design, Face ID tech and dual lens camera.
