iPhone 5 pre-orders top double that of the 4S in 24 hours

iPhone 5 pre-orders top 2 million in just 24 hours, doubles record of 4S

Here's more iPhone 5 related news for your viewing pleasure. Apple has announced today that pre-orders for the new iPhone topped 2 million in a mere 24 hours. This is more than double the one million garnered by the iPhone 4S. Currently, demand is exceeding supply, so if you haven't ordered yet, you will likely be waiting until October to get one.


That is, unless you sit out front an Apple store or wireless carrier's store before Friday at 8am. The queue is likely to be long, and the temperatures cold, but it will get you an iPhone 5 on launch day.

"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."
