Apple announced that over 1 million iPhone 4S smartphones were pre-ordered in the first 24 hours alone. This milestone surpasses that of the iPhone 4 which saw some 600,000 pre-orders in the same time period.
“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.”
The iPhone 4S will be available on October 14th in both Canada and the US. In Canada, it will be offered by Bell Mobility, Fido, Koodo, Rogers Wireless, TELUS Mobility, and Virgin Mobile Canada. In the US, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless will carry it.
