Apple has announced that they have sold four million iPhone 4S handsets in the first three days of sales, doubling the sales figures of the iPhone 4 in the same period.
“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend—the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPhone 4S is a hit with customers around the world, and together with iOS 5 and iCloud, is the best iPhone ever.”
In addition Apple has also announced that 25 million users have upgraded to iOS 5 and 20 million of them have signed up for iCloud as well.
