iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Blast over 2 Million in First 24 Hours

Apple just announced the expected iPhone 5 sales record.

The iPhone 5 went on pre-order last Friday and within 60 minutes the shipment time frame jumped to 2 weeks. Apple has now released the numbers behind this event. Apple today announced pre-orders of its iPhone 5 topped two million in just 24 hours, more than double the previous record of one million held by iPhone 4S.

Demand for iPhone 5 exceeds the initial supply and while the majority of pre-orders will be delivered to customers on September 21, many are scheduled to be delivered in October. 

“iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone 5 is the best iPhone yet, the most beautiful product we’ve ever made, and we hope customers love it as much as we do.”
