Three days after the official launch of the new iPhones on Friday, Apple reported that the new devices had set a new sales record during their first weekend on sale.

Follow up:

With more than 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units sold in three days, the new models beat last year's record when 9 million units of the iPhone 5s and 5c had been sold.

According to Apple's CEO Tim Cook, supply constraints were the only limiting factor in achieving even higher sales this year. After Apple had long been reluctant to release a larger-screen smartphone, the outlook that the company would finally give in to consumer demand and release a larger phone had prompted analysts to predict the mother lode of all upgrade cycles prior to the phone's release.

This chart shows launch weekend sales from the launch of the iPhone 3G in 2008 to the most recent launch of the iPhone 6 and 6+.
