Orders for the iPhone 5 reached the 2-million mark within 24 hours. Since the iPhone 5 was open to order last Friday at 8am in Britain it appeared that the stock sold out within only hour making it the fastest selling iPhone so far. The iPhone 4S took 22 hours to sell out.
It was confirmed by Apple that demand had exceeded supply and while most orders will be delivered by this coming Friday, the rest will be delivered in October. Apple’s marketing chief, Phil Schiller, said: “iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal”.
Meanwhile, queues are starting to form outside Apple Stores in anticipation of the iPhone 5 release on Friday.
The iPhone 5 is the first large-scale revision of the iPhone since its first model was released in 2007. With an elongated screen there is more room for extra icons and better film viewing capability. It is also thinner and lighter and has updated software.
