iPhone 5: 2 million pre-orders in 24 hours

Firm sees huge uptake for its latest blower

Apple has announced that pre-orders of the iPhone 5 have exceeded their initial supply, with over two million orders in 24 hours.

The majority of customers will receive their iPhone on the 21 September launch but have stressed that ‘many’ are scheduled to be delivered in October, which is worrying news for those looking to pick up the phone at launch.

iPhone 5 has doubled the record set by the iPhone 4S and will become Apple’s most successful iPhone to date.

The new device is Cupertino’s thinnest and lightest iPhone ever with a larger 4” retina display, custom A6 chip, and 4G support. Apple will ship the new phone with iOS6 adding a ton of new features including Flyover, Passbook, deep Twitter and Facebook integration as well as major improvements to Siri.  

It can be bought from 34 Apple retail stores across the UK from 8 a.m on 21 September with prices ranging from £529 (16GB) to £699 (64GB model).

 Additional information on UK tariffs can be found here.
