After much anticipation, the rumors flying around the web Apple once again set a new record. According to a new Reuters report published today, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus hit a total of 4 million on the first day doubling its predecessor iPhone 5.
Much was speculated in recent months over the possibility of a new iPhone and Apple delivered another great product. For a comprehensive run down of Apple’s new product MacRumors has highlighted the specs, features, prices, where to buy and more.
The company previously announced strong financial results for its fiscal third quarter that ended Jun. 28th, 2014. Apple posted quarterly revenue of 37.4 billion and a net profit of 7.7 billion. A year earlier it managed 35.3 billion with a net profit of 6.9 billion. In other words, they surpassed last year’s mark in large part thanks to the iPhone product line and the Mac.
“Our record June quarter revenue was fueled by strong sales of iPhone and Mac and the continued growth of revenue from the Apple ecosystem, driving our highest EPS growth rate in seven quarters,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We are incredibly excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, as well as other new products and services that we can’t wait to introduce.”
With the passing of Steve Jobs skepticism grew around the company’s ability to continue to dazzle consumers and maintain itself as a formidable brand within technology. As it turns every quarter the financial results remain strong while the enthusiasm and veneration towards the brand ceases to slow down.
The iPhone product has been a money maker and the accessories that come with it are a huge business. Small business, retailers, locally-owned shops and new online stores like Sesus will be readying their efforts to produce compatible cases for this next generation iPhone 6.
According to Digitaltrends, there may have been hiccups over the manufacturing of the iPhone screen and the possibility of adding sapphire style screens. No official confirmation or statement has been released, but the Reuters analysis did emphasize that demand outstripped supply for this iPhone event.
Whatever the scenario may be the expectations remain high for the Apple to deliver and this new sales record will put skeptics to rest for the time being. Since Tim Cook became the new CEO for Apple, nothing seems to have slowed or even break the company’s momentum to continually succeed.
