Apple announced Monday that preorders of the new iPhone 5 exceeded two million in their first 24 hours. The company added that demand has outstripped original supply, pushing some deliveries into October.
“iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal,” Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in a statement. “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.”
