"iPhone 5s is the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, delivering desktop class architecture in the palm of your hand. iPhone 5s sets a new standard for smartphones, packed into its beautiful and refined design are breakthrough features that really matter to people, like Touch ID, a simple and secure way to unlock your phone with just a touch of your finger," stated Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, during Apple's Sept 20 event.
"iPhone 5c is everything iPhone 5 was and more, in an all-new design packed with great features. iPhone 5c is designed with a beautiful polycarbonate enclosure that looks and feels so solid in your hand," he added.
These international rollouts will hopefully exceed Apple's record-breaking 9 million sales of the iPhone 5s and 5c which boost Apple's shares up to 5 per cent just within days after its Sept 20 release.
Both iPhone 5s and 5c were launched in Sept 20 in the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.
"This is our best iPhone launch yet-more than nine million new iPhones sold-a new record for first weekend sales. The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we've sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5s, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone's patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.
