The iPhone 4S is continuing to impress with it’s sales numbers, with 4 million units sold in its first three days on sale. That’s on top of the 1 million units that Apple sold during the iPhone 4S’ pre-order.
The 4 million iPhone 4S units sold is a new record for any phone sales in three days. Not only that, but it’s double the number of iPhone 4s Apple sold in that phones first day. So the iPhone 4S sold twice as many phones as Apple’s most successful smartphone ever during each phone’s first three days. That’s pretty impressive for a phone whose main new features are Siri, a better camera, a new carrier option, and and option for more storage space. Although it’s not too surprising given how amazing the camera is, and how cool the Siri feature is.
In addition to those 4 million phones sold, Apple has announced that 25 million users are now running on iOS 5. So now 25 million iOS users have access to iMessage, improved notifications, iCloud, Newsstand, and Reminders. Speaking of iCoud, Apple has also announced that 20 million people have signed up for iCloud accounts. The service only came out on Wednesday of last week, so that number could explain iCloud’s rather rocky start. Hopefully Apple can make sure those issues don’t pop up again as more and more users start signing up for the service.
