Apple Inc. announced today that they have sold more iPhone than ever before, breaking the previously held record.
The former record was 600,000 iPhone 4’s.
Today, Apple Inc. announced sales of one million new iPhone 4S hand-held units.
Apple released the following comment regarding the new milestone, “We are blown away with the incredible customer response to iPhone 4S,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
“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.”
Notable is that the sales were to stores that are planning to sell the device, not directly to the hands of consumers. Consumers will be able to pick up the new units later this week, Friday (October 14th, 2011). The iPhone 4S will be for sale at 245 Apple retail stores.
The new unit also features iOS 5 and iCloud which provides cloud-technology which is essentially data processing capabilities external to the device.
Apple noted that the new devices come in black or white and the 16GB model comes at a price of $199 to consumers whereas the 32GB variant will be sold for $299 and finally the new 64GB model carries 64GB of memory and will be sold for the highest amount, $399 dollars.
