iPhone 6 sets a new sales record - but growth is falling

    In just 3 days after sales began last Friday, 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have already been sold worldwide, the company’s official website writes . This is one million more than last year’s record for the iPhone 5s and 5c smartphones, which sold over nine million copies in the first three days .

    Apple CEO Tim Cook immediately stated that "the sales have exceeded our expectations from the launch weekend, and we have nowhere to go happier."

    Apple’s tradition of reporting the results of the first three days of sales allows us to trace the story a little deeper: 2 years ago, the premiere three-day sales of the all-new iPhone 5amounted to 5 million units , and 3 years ago, in 2011, iPhone 4s sold a circulation of 4 million copies . Total - 150% of sales growth over 3 years. A good result, although more could be expected from two completely new smartphones with enlarged displays. Perhaps the market is already saturated? See you next year.
