Apple Announces Record-Breaking 1 Million iPhone 4S Pre-Orders in 24 Hours

By , Oct 10, 2011

Apple has confirmed that iPhone 4S pre-orders topped 1 million units sold in the first 24 hours of availability. This number places the iPhone 4S as the most pre-ordered product in Apple’s history.

The iPhone 4 saw 600,000 pre-orders on its first day. Apple’s newest smartphone is on track to become the best-selling iPhone ever…

“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.”

AT&T alone accounted for 200,000 4S pre-orders in the first 24 hours.

Customers can still pre-order the iPhone 4S, but shipping estimates have now slipped to 1-2 weeks. Those that were lucky enough to get their pre-orders in early will have the iPhone 4S delivered from Apple on October 14th.

    I’m getting one for the wife
    I love my ip4 to much to trade in

    • Justin

      Then you would love your iPhone 4S even more. It’s same design except it has upgraded features. I would just tell your wife to keep an eye on her new phone because you might sneak in and steal it from her!

    Is this worldwide or just the USA?
    Personally I have ordered two (for my parents) 64gb iPhone 4s at Apple.com.Au and have updated my current plan to get another one for myself.

  • Max

    And this isn’t even in all of the countries. Here, in the netherlands, you can’t even buy before the 28th of October, amd really, on my school alone half of my class wants to pre order an iPhone 4S.

    fake news, y wud people buy a 4s when they have better options in mkt lyk S2 and iphone4, personally my iphone4 never stuck or got slow, so who need an a5 processor when a4 is capable of doing everything. No other improvements in 4S apart from camera. If you tell me people are opting 4S for SIRI, i m sure jailbreak community out there has something for 3GS and 4 that wud help us get SIRI

    • Juanldw

      Yeah but not everyone likes to jaillbreak their iphones, the idea of doing that scares most of them so they will naturally get the phone as it is, plus this is real they really got over a million pre orders

    • Dusean

      Coming from a person that jailbroken my iPhone 1st gen. and 3gs, I plan on NOT jailbreaking my 4S

      • Phosphorus

        You’re an idiot for that. YOU SHOULD jailbreak your 4s because:
        1. Jailbreaking is legal, no warranty void.
        2. You won’t be experiencing lag anymore, whereas with previous jailbroken iPhones, you might.
        3. WHY NOT?

  • Night

    Yea, the thing is that the pre order for iphone 4 was not only for AT&T? 4s is for 3 carriers, I think this makes the different and does not allow to compere with the pre sales of iphone 4 :-S

  • Hasan

    That’s a good news

    I could have been a million and one had they let me pre-order an unlocked 4S. :)

    My friends who have non-smartphone are all getting iPhone 4S. And those who has any previous iPhone other than iPhone 4 are waiting for contract to expire so they can get iPhone 4S. Some who don’t plan to get iPhone 4S are just hoping for iPhone 5 next year. I haven’t seen anyone who plan to get something other than iPhone.
    Of course, I’m upgrading to 32GB white iPhone 4S from 16GB black iPhone 4 :)
    I can’t imagine how well it would have sold if there was actually an iPhone 5.

  • Jason

    gonna pass up the 4S and wait for the 5. although my 3GS feels a lil dated I jus don’t like the 4′s design.
