Released on December 14th, the iPhone 5 managed to rack up more than two million sales in just three days. With the handset set to be available in more than 100 countries before the end of the year, this is the fastest ever rollout of the iPhone ever.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has said:
Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China. China is a very important market for us and customers there cannot wait to get their hands on Apple products.
With the iPhone 5 going on sale in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan, among others, on September 21st, more than five million devices were shifted during that first weekend launch.
With the next launch on December 24th in countries including Barbados, Senegal and Vietnam, Apple look to be ending the year strongly.
