Pre-orders for Apple's new iPhone 4S spiraled past the million mark within 24 hours Apple says. That's better than any iPhone before it. The old Apple record was held by the iPhone 4, which was pre-ordered 600,000 times its first day.
Apple SVP of worldwide product marketing said, "The first-day preorders for iPhone 4S have been the most for any new product that Apple has ever launched and we are thrilled that customers love iPhone 4S as much as we do."
The widget hits Apple retail stores in the US on October 14 and are due to move out to 22 other countries by the end of the month.
The pre-order floodgates opened before dawn last Friday, the day of Steve Jobs' private funeral.
