During pre-order weekend Apple sold 4 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices. A week later Apple sold over 10 million iPhones during opening weekend. And now, reports claim that the company is now hitting 20 million sales. This is roughly 2 weeks after the device went on sale in its brick-and-mortor stores in the US.
According to a report from Forbes, the only thing hindering iPhone sales is the lack of availability. The report also hints that iOS 8 adoption isn’t going as well compared to previous years. Though, neither of the issues are hindering the iPhones demand.
As shown in the graph below, the iPhone 6 is nearly doubling in internet traffic. Though its bigger brother is suffering in this department. Though that’s probably a supply and demand issue.

The iPhone 6 still shows a shipping date of 7-10 business days and the iPhone 6 Plus at 3-4 weeks. On October 17, Tim Cook and Co are slated to launch the new iPhones in their biggest market, China. The country reserved 2 million of Apple’s new hardware within the first six hours.
The two new iPhones are arguably the most popular device all around the world. The company has yet to reveal it’s iPhone sales pass opening weekend, but we’d expect the company to pass 20 million, easily.
