The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are bigger than their predecessors in more ways than one.
The devices, which boast larger screens, are so popular since their unveiling last week that they have broken all iPhone pre-order sales records.
Apple sold a record 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones on Friday, the first day that the new iGadgets were available for pre-order, the company said Monday.
Demand for the new iPhones was so high that the iPhone 6 Plus sold out within hours. While many people who pre-ordered the iPhone 6 will get them this Friday, many others won’t get their iPhones delivered until next month.
“Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply,” Apple said in a statement.
The company noted that an additional supply of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones will be made available to walk-in customers on Friday Sept. 19, beginning at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple stores.
People have already begun camping outside Apple Stores around the world to be among the first to get their hands on one of the new iPhones.
This is the first year that Apple announced how many iPhones it sold in the first day — rather than in the first weekend. A year ago, Apple said it sold 9 million iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones in the first weekend.
What makes the iPhone so hot, aside from having the latest Apple product, is the larger screen sizes.
The iPhone 6 is 4.7 inches, while the iPhone 6 Plus measures 5.5 inches diagonally, giving Samsung, which has dominated the giant phone market, some competition.
The iPhones are also packed with new features, including “reachability.” With a double touch, the display can slide down so users can reach “anything” at the top of the phone, an ideal feature for multitasking.
Apple Pay, the company’s digital wallet that is aiming to be a credit card killer, will also be supported on the new iPhones.
