A record-breaking nine million new 5S and 5C iPhones have been sold worldwide since the recent Sept. 20 launch.

Additionally, Apple reports that more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, sums it up: "This is our best iPhone launch yet (with) more than nine million new iPhones sold (and) a new record for first weekend sales. The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible, and while we've sold out of our initial supply of iPhone 5S, stores continue to receive new iPhone shipments regularly. We appreciate everyone's patience and are working hard to build enough new iPhones for everyone."

Available in gold, silver or space gray, the new thin and light iPhone 5S features the Apple-designed A7 64-bit chip, all-new 8 megapixel iSight camera with True Tone flash and Touch ID, which enables you to unlock your phone with just the touch of a finger. The lower-cost iPhone 5C comes in a choice of blue, green, pink, yellow or white and features a 4-inch Retina display, fast A6 chip, 8 megapixel iSight camera and longer lasting battery.

Both models are now on sale in Canada, US, Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.

In Canada, the 16 GB iPhone 5C sells for $129 with a 2-year wireless plan, while the 32 GB model will run you $229 on contract. The iPhone 5S costs $229 for the 16 GB model, $329 for 32 GB, and $439 for 64 GB. Expect to pay between $729.95 to $959.95 with no wireless plan.
