Apple revealed that it sold over 10 million new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models during the first three days of availability. This probably doesn't come as much of a surprise, but that's a record breaking opening weekend for iPhones.

Before the devices became available, Apple had already set a record with pre-orders.

“Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We would like to thank all of our customers for making this our best launch ever, shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin. While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.”

The devices are currently available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK, and will be available in over 20 more countries on September 26.

The company is telling potential customers to keep checking back at the Apple Store or online for updates on availability and estimated delivery dates. Or you could just spend a ridiculous amount of money and buy a new iPhone on eBay.

Here's a closer look at the new devices and iOS 8.
