    Pretty incredible if true. (Honestly unsure how reliable this site is.)

    If it's anywhere near that amount, it already blows out the 9 million the 5S/C did.

    Sources in China pointed out that, unlike the launch of iPhone 5s same time last year which received only 9 million preorders on the first day, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus received 16 million preorders in one day.

    Plausible, but where are they getting their source?

    I'm a bit skeptical as the 5S was not available for pre-order...

    And that 9 million number included sales of the 5C IIRC.

    Sorry but I can't trust the source. "Source in China"??? They are not in position to know the number.

    I'm pretty skeptical...the article is mistaken--Apple didn't get 9 million preorders, and certainly not on the first day. Apple got 9 million unit sales on OPENING WEEKEND.

    I don't believe there's any public record of Apple announcing how many people preordered.

    They only tend to announce the unit sales for opening weekend (which would be the weekend of the 20th-21st for this year)

    Regardless, 16M would still be incredible!

    If that's accurate, I think the best response would be "Mother Nature just pissed her pantsuit!"

    I have no doubt it'll be there highest preorder sales to date but 16m is stretching it pretty dang far.

    Maybe the 9 million "preorders" is supposed to reference how many phones Apple ordered from China manufacturers before launch day.

    While I'm sure Apple sold a boatload of them, I doubt they sold that many.

    And it was all because of the bigger screens, most certainly.

    If they doubled their 5S first day sales that would be great. 2.7 million 5S sold the first day. You noticed in the article they said 9 million 5S first day preorders sales. Only one thing wrong, really really wrong with the article. There were no 5S preorders.

    Yes, but that only adds up to 12.7 million.

    Numbers should definitely be a lot higher than the 5s/c.

    The 6/6+ includes the 5s/c market AND the phablet market/phablet converts.
