When Apple finally launched the iPhone 4 last week experts predicted extremely high sales, they were not wrong as Steve Jobs has recently revealed that the three day sales figures set a new record for Apple.
In these three days Apple sold a staggering 1.7 million iPhone 4 smartphones, this makes it Apple’s most successful product launch ever. Apple have also stated that first-day sales were ‘off the charts’, if supplies could have kept up with demand this number could have been much higher.
Apple have not provided a breakdown of the sales, however I reckon that they shifted close to 1 million units on its launch day, which is what the iPhone 3GS managed in its opening weekend.
To be honest I think Apple would have liked things to have gone a bit smoother, this is because there have been plenty of problems with signal/reception, lets just hope that they patch this problem as soon as possible.
