AT%T revealed that the fastest selling Apple smartphone is now the iPhone 5. However, the company will not share any numbers right now as to how well the iPhone 5 is selling this weekend.
The numbers are typically available only for Apple. It is expected that the company will announce values in a couple of days. AT&T mentioned that the iPhone 5 set sales record during the first day of the pre-orders.
The new Apple iPhone has a 4 inch retina display, 1GB memory, global 4G LTE, a Lightning dock connector, among others. Pre-order to the smart phone was made available last Friday.
Many carrier websites malfunctioned after the announcement of the sales of the new iPhone, as they were flooded by many customers. AT&T’s website, for example, had to shut down for two hours after the announcement of the sale.
In fact, the first batch of Apple iPhone 5 smart phones was sold out in the first hour alone.
Obviously, Apple is very happy with the response of the consumers, despite the delays and outages. The company said last Friday that it was “blown away by the customer response.”
For the month of September alone, Apple anticipates around 6 to 10 million sales, and around 49 million for the fourth quarter of this year.
