This should silence the critics. Apple has officially announced that sales of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c have topped 9 million in the first weekend of sales, outgunning the previous record of 5 million for the iPhone 5, which in itself was a historic feat for the Cupertino company.

Tim Cook said, “This is our best iPhone launch yet?more than nine million new iPhones sold?a new record for first weekend sales. The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we’ve sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone.”

Analysts peg iPhone 5s sales to be at around 6.5 million units while its colourful sibling the iPhone 5c at around 2.5 million units.

In the US, the gold iPhone 5s is a major hit, quickly going out of stock on launch day , although this could be related to manufacturing as opposed to stock inventory per se.

Apple also revealed that more than 200 million iOS devices are now running iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

Both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.

Demand for iPhone 5s has exceeded the initial supply, and many online orders are scheduled to be shipped in the coming weeks.
