2 Million iPhone 5 Pre-Ordered in 24 Hours knocking iPhone 4S sales

The Mac Daddy’s company is already booming up with the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 revealed on September 12 disappointed many fans but still overwhelmed many of the users who are still in fate of upgrading to iPhone 5 because of the quality, power, features and much better design comparing to any smartphone device. The iPhone’s are the only smartphones running iOS 6 and people have loved iOS 6 against Android over knowing that many features are adopted from Jay Freeman’s Cydia.

Folks around are disturbing the iPhone 5’s reputation by claiming that the Cupertino company have just stretched the iPhone 4/4S, believing on that if Apple would have added Near Field Communication (NFC), HDMI port/Micro-USB cable or any other global used accessory connection it would have been fabulous but still Apple has done it.

Well, just days before the iPhone 5 event ‘It’s almost here’, Samsung Galaxy S3 ousted iPhone 4S as the best-selling smartphone in America by the carriers of T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon. Today Apple has announced exclusive news that again slaps on Samsung.

Two Million iPhone 5’s have been pre-ordered in first 24 hours on September 14. AT&T has reported that the Apple’s fastest selling smartphone is the iPhone 5. An estimate of 46 iPhone 5’s pre-ordered in a second, 1388 per minute, 83,333 per hour on September 14 which was claimed by one of the Apple’s spokesperson ‘We’ve been completely blown away by the customer response’.

On September 14, Apple was completely raffled due to the high pre-order and the delivery time for the shipment of the iPhone 5 slipped from one week to two weeks. Last year one Million iPhone 4S’s were pre-ordered on the first day of pre-ordering while comparing to iPhone 4 it was 600,000 pre-orders.

Phill Schiller in an official Statement Stated:

“iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal… 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.”

The competition isn’t over yet. Apple has four more days to surpass the Galaxy S III sale. The iPhone 5 will go on sale at September 21 in selected 21 countries. Before the iPhone 5 makes an appearance on the shelves of the Apple Stores, people have already started to line up outside the Fifth Ave Apple Store in the New York for the iPhone 5.
