Apple topped expectations and set a new record with sales of 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices on its opening weekend, the company announced this morning.

The number beat the 9 million iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units sold on the launch weekend a year ago, and came without the benefit of sales in China, where those previous versions debuted out of the gate.

“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,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, announcing the sales figures in a news release.

More than 550 people were in line for the device at Apple’s store in Seattle Friday morning. Apple has been in short supply of the iPhone 6 Plus, in particular.
