Apple announced record mobile phone sales figures
Apple has announced that its new iPhone 5S and 5C devices broke all previous sales records.
The Cupertino-based firm confirmed that nine million of the devices were bought in the opening weekend of sales.
Impressive sales figures have come from the fact the iPhone 5C offered a cheaper version of the device, which may have appealed to smartphone users who could not afford a flagship mobile phone from Apple in the past.
The firm's chief executive Tim Cook did not reveal the specific figures for each handset however, which has led to further speculation that the 5C has not performed as well as initially expected.
Rumours earlier this month suggested that Apple has reduced production levels of the budget-friendly devices as demand had not reached expected heights.
However, this has been refuted by the firm and the sales figures seem to suggest that the devices are performing very well.
