    A bit of apples and oranges if you compare 5s+5c to previous year 5. Should have compared to 5+4s

    Still a mighty achievement.
    But I thought everyone was saying the 5C is a flop and not selling?

    Apple didn't announce 4S figures last year. They were probably no higher on launch weekend than any other time in the quarter, so you can likely figure out how many were sold in 3 days. Probably not nearly enough to significantly change the comparison.

    I think this is the first iPhone sales announcement where they mentioned the number of iOS devices running the new software. 200 million. Fastest software upgrade in history. Not bad for software that s supposedly the worst thing ever designed in the history of software. :D

    9 MILLION!!!! No freaking way. When the new iPhones were announced all the tech pundits said Apple would be lucky to sell just a few million iPhones because they were just last year's models rehashed with minor upgrades. 9 EFFING MILLION!!! WOW! Apple just delayed its doom for another quarter. Maybe... but unfortunately next year Wall Street will want Apple to sell 12 million iPhones over a weekend or else investor fears will return.

    That announcement should send up Apple stock about $5 a share.

    And to Peter Misek of Jefferies... FU, you manipulating prick.

    My 5S gold arrives 5-7 days earlier than originally promised! Now, that's execution: underpromise, overdeliver.

    Add: Stock up $30 pre-market. Yikes.

    Fantastic.

     

    They still have a huge growth margin in the high end, especially with a bigger screen.

    Ahhh, someone has perhaps learned a lesson in this. Yes, Grasshopper, there are more important things in life than money!

    Coupled with news that they sold about 3.5:1 ratio of 5S:5C, to appease the naysayers that the 5C sales shouldn't count being internally equivalent to a 5, that still amounts to about 7 million 5S units, outpacing 5's 5 million, and up against self-competition from the 5C and stiffer premium-market competition from the Lumia and Moto X that weren't as strong (or weren't around at all) last year.

    Those ratios are in store sales and don't take into account online preorder sales available only to the 5C. That said, the 5S offers lots more for just $100.

    Using the ratio 3.4, that's 2.647M 5Cs sold--almost 1M/day. And the sales have only begun.

    We all should be throwing this in the faces of those analysis who have no clue what they are talking about. But keep in mind those analysis just made their investors $50 a share in the last few weeks since we all know the companies they worked for sold the week before the announcements and then the puppet analysis came out and delivered the bad news and drove the stock down 50 points and you know their companies bought back in last week. They will be selling the next since puppy analysis will come out and say more bad things.

    Too many iPhones sold. They have nowhere to go but down. Apple is doomed.

    I predicted 7-8 MM. This is fantastic. So much for the "5C is too expensive" crowd. Of course they will switch their tunes to the "imagine if the 5C was $50 cheaper..." Crowd.

    Didn't Ming predict 7-9 million? Again he proves more reliable than the rest if the analysts.

    9 million...insane. Can't wait for mine to get here (Thursday!)
