An Apple spokesperson told AllThingsD today the the company is “blown” away by the response to the iPhone 5 and that pre-orders have been “incredible”.
This comes after AT&T and Verizon reported that they sold out of their pre-order stock. Pre-orders began early this morning and shipping times dropped to 2 weeks for each model after only a couple hours, although Sprint still plans to deliver by September 21st.
“Pre-orders for iPhone 5 have been incredible,” said Apple spokeswoman, Natalie Kerris. “We’ve been completely blown away by the customer response.”
The iPhone 5 was announced by Apple this past Wednesday at a special event in San Francisco. It features a larger display, 4G LTE, iOS 6, an A6 chip, and more.
