Apple: Over a million iPhone 4S pre-orders in the first 24 hours

Apple announced today that within the first 24 hrs more than a million pre-orders for its new iPhone 4S were taken after making them available through the Apple online store and wireless carriers. Just after the opening of pre-orders, Apple has completely sold through its stock of new iPhone 4S devices for its Oct. 14 U.S. launch day.

Apple ushered in the latest model of its iPhone, the iPhone 4S, last week with much expectation. The new model features raised its grade with the phone’s processor, camera and a new personal voice assistant called Siri.

The time frame for getting the new phone on the day of launch have ended and the pre-ordered phone’s shipping expects to take 1-2 weeks. Apple has never experienced such a highest pre-order numbers with iPhone, according to Apple SVP of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller. Apple has already experienced insane demand for the new iPhone, with U.S. wireless carrier AT&T reporting that it had already taken well over 200,000 orders just 12 hours after making the phone eligible on its website, according to Reuters — which would indicate that the company probably had comparable numbers from the other two carriers offering the iPhone (Sprint and Verizon). And now we have confirmation. Analysts expect that Apple will sell close to 27 million phones in the October-December quarter, according to the report from Reuters.

The iPhone 4S will be launched worldwide on October 14 in United States, Australia, Japan, Canada, France, Germany and the U.K.
