If you were having doubts about the popularity of Apple’s new iPhone 4S you probably had initial hints as per how well these phones were selling thanks to the Apple Store that went out of stock in the first day.
AT&T already admitted the iPhone 4S was the most successful iPhone to date, the carrier selling on pre-orders 200K phones. Now Apple brings on the numbers to tell the world that more than one million iPhone 4S devices were sold in the first day of pre-orders. It’s a huge growth if we compare it to the previous record held by the iPhone 4, accounting for 600,000 units.
“The first day pre-orders for iPhone 4S have been the most for any new product that Apple has ever launched and we are thrilled that customers love iPhone 4S as much as we do”, said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
