Dopo la conferma delle 200.000 unità vendute da AT&T nelle prime 12 ore, arriva un altro dato record: Apple ha confermato che la società ha venduto un numero da capogiro di iPhone 4S durante la prima giornata di pre-ordini, oltre un milione. Il record precedente era detenuto dall’iPhone 4, che l’anno scorso raggiunse quota 600.000 unità vendute in un giorno.

Apple quest’anno però poteva contare su un numero maggiore di operatori partner per il lancio, tra cui Verizon e Sprint negli Stati Uniti, oltre alla solita AT&T, ma ciò non toglie che il dato sia incredibilmente impressionante. Ricordiamo che iPhone 4S è stato accolto con freddezza sia dagli utenti, sia dalla stampa, a causa delle poche innovazioni e dalla “delusione” dell’assenza dell’attesissimo iPhone 5.

Di seguito riportiamo il comunicato stampa di Apple in lingua originale:
