Figures released in the United States have shown that sales figures for the new Apple iPhone 4S could smash all previous records, which could result in similar trends in the UK and other parts of Europe.
In what has been described as a fitting tribute to Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple who died this week aged just fifty six, sales of the new Apple iPhone 4S are set to smash all previous sales records in the United States. The data comes from mobile phone companies and communications giants and could result in similar trends in the UK and other parts of Europe.
Based on the response received from consumers shortly after the release of the new iPhone was announced, many experts believe that sales will go through the roof. In the twelve hours following the announcement AT&T saw two hundred thousand pre-orders come pouring in. A number of operators in the United States are said to be enjoying a ‘booming trade’ in the aftermath of the iPhone 4S announcement.
Officials from AT&T described it as ‘the most successful iPhone launch we’ve ever had’. It is thought that Verizon will also have clocked up similar numbers of pre-orders to AT&T and Sprint is estimated to have received around one hundred thousand.
Whilst there have been some grumbles about the new iPhone in the UK from consumers who were perhaps expecting a little more than just an upgrade to the iPhone 4 there will no doubt be many loyal Apple followers who will still be eager to get their hands on the new handset when it is released later this month.
