iPhone 4S Pre Orders ! One Million and Counting

iOS 5 includes a new Messages feature for sending messages to other iOS devices for free, no texting required.

iOS 5 is the new version of Apple's mobile OS. It includes revamped notifications, a new Messages feature and deep integration with Twitter.

One of the Most Important feature in iPhone4s is the voice controlled "Intelligent Assistant that can complete tasks based on natural language.

Allaying any doubts that the iPhone 4S will be a big seller, Apple announced pre-orders for the new model topped 1 million in 24 hours, which breaks the previous single-day record of 600,000 for the iPhone 4.

In a press release posted on — the company’s first public statement since Steve Jobs’s death — Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, said he was “blown away” by the consumer response to the iPhone 4S.

Apple began taking pre-orders on the phone on Friday, three days after the company introduced it in a press conference and two days after Jobs died. The iPhone 4S will go on sale in the U.S. at 8 a.m. local time on Friday, Oct. 14. The phone comes in black and white and will be available for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16 GB model, $299 for the 32 GB version and $399 for the 64 GB model.

The strong pre-orders come after some, who expected an iPhone 5, were underwhelmed by Apple’s iPhone 4S announcement. However, Apple’s deviation from its usual iPhone shipping schedule — new phones have been announced every summer since 2007 until now — has created pent-up demand for the device.

iPhone 5 Launch Day Sales Expected at 1.7 Million

Iphone  Sales  per Quarter
Apple's reported decision to release a new iPhone in the fall, as opposed to the summer, will deliver massive sales, writes RBC analyst Mike Abramsky in a note.

RBC surveyed 2,200 consumers and found "unprecedented demand," with 31% of consumers very/somewhat likely to buy an iPhone 5, which is stronger than the 25% of consumers that were very/somewhat likely to buy an iPhone 4, when RBC did the same sort of survey before it launched.

 Sources in the Industry says that Apple's delay could cause a bigger upgrade from existing iPhone owners, since the iPhone 4 is 15 months old. He says 66% of existing iPhone owners are very/somewhat likely to buy a new iPhone.

If Apple  manages to sell 110 million iPhones, it will generates $140 billion in sales overall, and earns $34.50 per share for fiscal 2012. Apple reported $12.3 billion in iPhone sales last quarter, half of its overall revenue, and up 126% year-over-year.

Wall Street analysts are already predicting record first day sales for Apple’s iPhone 5.
Demand and anticipation for a new iPhone is always high, but thanks to a 16-month gap between the release of the iPhone 4 and its successor, customers are more excited about the iPhone 5 than ever.

In 2010, the iPhone 4 moved 1.7 million units in its first three days of release and was Apple’s most successful product launch ever. Apple's iPhone has gone from zero to half of Apple's revenue in less than 4 years.

The real story for Apple continues to be the iPhone which did $13.3 billion in sales for the quarter. The iPhone and iPad are now 66% of Apple's sales, impressive considering how relatively new the products are.
