Despite all theproblems, the new iPhone 4 has broken all the sales record for Apple. After selling 1.5 Million iPhone 4’s right on the first day of the release, this morning, Apple confirmed via press release that they have managed to sell over 1.7 Million iPhone 4’s in just three days of its launch. On this occasion, Apple CEO Steve Jobs called it the most successful Apple product ever.
This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.
Selling 1.7 Million devices in just three days of launch speaks for the device itself. In last quarter (Q2 2010), Apple sold 8.75 Million iPhones which resulted in 13.5 Billion dollars in revenue.
