iPhone 5 sales surpass 5 million within 3 days of release


iPhone 5 sales hit 5 million

iPhone 5 sales skyrocket to 5 million in 3 days

The Apple iPhone 5 started sales on September 21; the pre-order scheduled for 14th September received 2 million orders within 24hrs. Even before the announcement of the iPhone 5, analyst has been predicting its sales for the first quarter and when it finally debut, it was said that the sales by the end of the debut month will hit 6 – 10 million units. An analyst predicted that by the close of the open sales weekend, the iPhone 5 sales would be approaching 8 million; Apple is known to double the sales of each successor iPhones.

After the iPhone started selling on September 21, the total census of total sales made by the closing of business on September 24, the iPhone 5 had already overshoot the 5 million mark in its sales, it’s like the smartphone is moving the market and may turn out to become the best selling iPhone.

iPhone 5 sales hit 5 million

In its first weekend of debut last year, the iPhone 4S sold 4 million units and its predecessor, iPhone 4 was just 1.7 million back in the first weekend of 2010 debut.

As at now, the demand of the iPhone 5 has exceeded the available supply and some pre-orders that were made late would have to be patient for 2 – 3 weeks before they could lay their hands on the long awaited iPhone 5.

The launch on the 21st September brings the iPhone 5 into 9 countries that includes; US, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK. Some other 22 countries are to welcome the iPhone 5 on September 28, and this list include; Belgium, Austria, Denmark, Czech Republic, Finland, Estonia, Ireland, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Italy, New Zealand, Netherlands, Poland, Norway, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Slovakia and Switzerland. And by the end of the year, the iPhone 5 market should have hit 100; I pray this country become lucky to be among.

As the attribute of Apple products, the iPhone 5 comes out the most expensive smartphone, and the European market price for the SIM-free iPhone 5 is around €670.

The iPhone 5 is coming in two different colors, the white and the black flavor. The chipset on the iPhone 5 is named A6 by Apple, analyst has been able to analyze the A6 Chipset and found out that it has a double performance than the A5 in the iPhone 4S predecessor. The chipset processor clocks 1.2GHz and supported by 1GB RAM. It is also packaged with PowerVR SGX 54MP3 three-core GPU, with a performance that is very close to the A5X GPU in the new iPad.

If you are on the 4G LTE network in your country, just wait for the iPhone 5 and when it comes, you are good to go. But if you don’t have it, your HSPA will still work.

With the huge iphone 5 sales within just 3 days, what should we be expecting in the next couple of days as the new device continue to dominate the market? Do you think more iPhone 5 sales is possible or not? Please share your views

    I really can’t believe people are buying this. Even when they see the difference with Android smartphones. I’m not an Apple hater, but seriously Jelly Bean can beat iOS 6 in so many ways and not to mention Galaxy S 3 against iPhone 5.

    5 million sales in 3 days, that’s really awesome, but no doubt iPhone lovers are crazy about it. Well, iPhone 5 has much enhanced features from it’s predecessors such as bigger screen, better screen resolution, lighter weight and also it has 4G LTE.

    The iPhone 5 Map app is defective so they said, and Apple has apologize for the app error with a promise to create a better one. That is one error found with the new iPhone 5. If the Samsung galaxy is perfect, then i think S galaxy got advantage over it.

    The crave for iphones is a mystery. I=Could it be because of the hype which apple people give apple before its release to the market?

      You are right, but Apple has so much built a brand that people marvel about, that is why there is always a quake whenever Apple is about releasing a new product, especially its iPhone.
