About this Deal
|There was a pretty good idea that the demand for the iPhone 5 was higher than in years past, at least according to the number of people who tried to sell their old iPhones before it launched and the interest in its rollout. But demand might have been bigger than even Apple imagined.|
This morning Apple announced that 2 million iPhone 5s had been pre-ordered within 24 hours of being on sale early Friday morning. The ship date of the new larger and faster phone slipped from one week to two and now it won’t ship for up to three weeks at many retailers.
