It was a good weekend for Apple.
The company climbed 6 percent in pre-market trading following the announcement it crushed expectations and sold a record 9 million iPhones in the first weekend (compared to 5 million in the opening weekend last year).
It is currently trading up 3.98% at the time of publication.
Apple also issued an SEC filing saying that it expects to hit the high-end of its earlier Q4 guidance, which was forecasted in the $34 to $37 billion range.
