Apple said today it has sold over five million of its new iPhone 5 in the three days since it became available on September 21. It added that its customers have updated more than 100 million iOS devices to run the new iOS6 operating system, which includes the much-maligned Apple Maps app.
Apple said the iPhone 5 is 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. "Demand for iPhone 5 exceeded the initial supply and while the majority of pre-orders have been shipped to customers, many are scheduled to be shipped in October," Apple added. source: Apple statement
