Apple put out a statement Monday morning saying it sold over five million iPhone 5s since Friday. It's not as many as the eight or 10 million Wall Street has been talking about, which may be why the stock is down 2% pre-market.
The company said the "incredible" demand for the phone "exceeded the initial supply and while the majority of pre-orders have been shipped to customers, many are scheduled to be shipped in October."
It had CEO Tim Cook say that "stores continue to receive iPhone 5 shipments regularly and customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date. We appreciate everyone's patience and are working hard to build enough iPhone 5s for everyone."
The new iPhone is currently available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK, and will be available in 22 more countries on September 28 and more than 100 countries by the end of the year.
Apple also said that more than 100 million iOS devices have been updated to iOS 6.
In the US the iPhone 5 is available from the Apple Online Store, Apple's retail stores, and through AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless. It is also supposedly available through select Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target and Wal-Mart stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers though they may not have gotten many.
iPhone 5 will be available on September 28 in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
