Sprint’s newly appointed CEO Marcelo Claure shared on Twitter over the weekend that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus debut marked the most successful iPhone launch in Sprint’s historical past.

The announcement matches proper with Apple’s announcement that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus broke previous preorder sales records and in the present day’s news that Apple sold over 10 million iPhones 6 from preorder and launch weekend gross sales.
Sprint’s historical past of iPhone launches doesn't embrace each era of the system, although, because the iPhone 4s was the primary mannequin obtainable at launch on the service following AT&T and later Verizon. Rival service AT&T, which has carried each iPhone mannequin since 2007, shared earlier this month that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch noticed extra demand than both of the earlier two years.
As for Sprint’s greatest iPhone launch ever, the service’s CEO Marcelo Claure mostly inherited the iPhones 6 launch after being appointed in early August when it deserted plans to accumulate rival service T-Mobile. Earlier this month, although, Sprint did introduce a new iPhone-focused plan dubbed ‘iPhone for Life’ with limitless knowledge and 2-yr upgrades included.
