Apple recently announced that the iPhone 6 would be launching in China on the 17th of October, and now it looks like the handset is off to a good start in the country.
When the iPhone 6 was first launched, Apple received a total of 4 million pre-orders in 24 hours, it looks like the launch in China could be even more popular, as there have been 2 million reservations of the new iPhone 6 in China in just 6 hours.
According to a recent report from Sina, the most popular models that people are ordering in China are the 64GB version of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
When the iPhone launched in the U.S., Europe and other countries, Apple managed to sell a total of 10 million iPhones in the first weekend of sales, this 10 million figure included the 4 million pre-orders the company received.
It will be interesting to see how many handsets Apple can sell in China in its first weekend of sales, considering they managed to sell 2 million pre-orders in just 6 hours.
Apple’s latest iPhones are expected to be their most popular smartphone to date, and it looks like the devices are on track to beat last years sales, as they already managed to beat their opening weekend sales for the iPhone 5S by 1 million.
