Apple said Monday it sold a record nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models during the first weekend the devices went on sale, topping Wall Street expectations.
Demand for the iPhone 5s exceeded the initial supply, and many online orders are scheduled to be shipped in the coming weeks, the company added.
Apple also said more than 200 million iOS devices are now running its new iOS 7 mobile operating system, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.
"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," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO.
Investors were expecting first-weekend sales of between six and eight million.
Apple shares jumped 3.7% to $484.60 in pre-market trading Monday.
