Apple: iPhone 5 pre-orders top 2 million in first 24 hours


No matter what you think about Apple and their recently announced iPhone 5, you can’t deny the appeal of the device. Apple has announced that 24 hours after the iPhone 5 went on pre-order, they’ve managed to nab 2 million orders – which is double what the iPhone 4S got when it was launched last year. It seems like consumers aren’t really interested in ground-breaking specs and are more interested in getting a phone that just works, which has been Apple’s strategy when it comes to devices since time immemorial. For the lucky people who managed to get their pre-orders in, the new iPhone 5 will be dropping in US stores on September 21.
