Consumers have snatched up more than 13 million new Phone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices since they went on sale last Friday, Apple announced in a press release today.

Even though it’s an off-year, when Apple upgrades the existing model of iPhone rather than releasing a new generation designated by a higher number, the 13 million phones sold are still a record, according to the press release. The new phones feature Multi-Touch, which measure how hard you press the screen, and Live Photos, which animate pictures on the device.

Last year, the first weekend of iPhone 6 sales saw 10 million devices come off the shelves, while in 2013 Apple sold nine million of the then-new 5S and 5C in the first three days.
