Pre-order records have begun to fall as the iPhone 5 has completely sold out after just two days of availability. Apple issued a press release detailing the record-breaking orders of over two million units on day one. The sales break last year’s record of one million iPhone 4S units ordered on the first day of availability.
“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.”
The iPhone 5 will be available beginning this Friday, September 21. Pre-orders have begun shipping from China, but will not be released to customers until Friday.
