As the first reviews roll in on the new iPhone 6, the smartphone has already smashed Apple's record for preorders, with more than 4 million iPhone 6 devices ordered in the first 24 hours.
How do all of these iPhones get to U.S. consumers? On planes!
One reader of MacRumors shared photos showing 195,000 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices he just flew to the U.S. from China: " Yep, that's what I do. I fly stuff. Privileged to be a small part of the team. Just landed a 747 in Anchorage," he wrote.
HuffPost Tech reports he wrote in a later post that "the shipment [weighed] a combined 256,000 pounds, and the plane landed at 'a little under max landing weight at 643,000 lbs.'"
Of course, 195,000 iPhones is just a drop in the bucket with millions of preorders. Apple has already warned customers that "demand had outstripped supply" for the new iPhones and that some customers will have to wait until next month for their order to be fulfilled.
