iPhone 6s and 6s Plus went on sale on Friday. Many people queued up across the globe to grab them. A robot also queued up in Sydney to buy iPhone. As per the Apple expectations, they are looking at around 12 million to 13 million sales by first weekend.
Among the first to pick up the new iPhone 6s in a cold, rainy Sydney was a telepresence robot named Lucy, operated by marketing executive Lucy Kelly.
“I obviously have my work and other things to attend to and can’t spend two days lining up so my boss at work suggested I take one of the robots down and use it to stand in my place,” she said via an iPad mounted on top of the wheeled robot.
Fans around the world have camped out for days prior to the release, and Apple has said pre-orders suggested sales were on pace to beat last year’s first-weekend performance.
Sales of iPhones accounted for nearly two-thirds of Apple’s revenue in the latest quarter. First released in 2007, it is Apple’s best-selling device to date.
