According to Apple, the new iPhone lineup sold over 13 million units in just three days after its official launch on September 25. The press release also quotes Tim Cook saying:
“Sales for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple’s history. Customers’ feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos, and we can’t wait to bring iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to customers in even more countries on October 9.”

The iPhone 6s starts at $649 and the iPhone 6s Plus at $749 in an unlocked configuration in the United States, and the price will sure vary depending on the country and the taxes.
