Last year, Apple sold 4 million iPhones within a week. Apple said that within 24 hours after the release of the iPhone 5, its online pre-sales reached 2 million units, which is twice compared with the iPhone 4S reservation form last year. Of course, these two online sales events are plagued by some of the original technical problems, which lead to the ultimate sales will be more memorable.
