“Apple will see record sales of its newest iPhone this weekend, predicts social app company Foursquare,” Lawrence Lewitinn reports for Yahoo Finance. “The mobile app developer forecasts Apple will sell between 13 million and 15 million iPhone units this weekend with launch of the new 6s model, based on data captured by the company’s flagship Foursquare and Swarm apps.”
“Specifically, Foursquare data show a 360% increase in visits to Apple stores last week compared to their prior 12-week average,” Lewitinn reports. “In the week leading up to the September 2014 release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, foot traffic was 330% higher than its previous 12-week average. Apple sold 10 million units that launch weekend.”
It turned out that those 10 million iPhones is exactly 3.3 times more than the average sales leading up to the launch/ We’re feeling pretty good that this could be a record year for Apple… We’re seeing a surge of foot traffic to Apple stores in the week leading up to the launch this year even more than in previous record years. — Jeffrey Glueck, Foursquare COO
