iPhone 4S Sales Reach 4 Million in First Weekend

Although Apple [AAPL] didn’t impress some people with the launch of the iPhone 4S (a lot were expecting a different design and a new name of the iPhone 5), it seems that this hasn’t caused problems for sales in any noticeable way as the company has now announced that 4 million units were sold within the first weekend of launch.

“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend—the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPhone 4S is a hit with customers around the world, and together with iOS 5 and iCloud, is the best iPhone ever.”

As well as announcing some quite healthy launch numbers for the hardware, Apple has also announced that 25 million users have now downloaded iOS 5 these past few days.

Overall, it’s safe to say Apple has done well with the iPhone 4S despite the murmurings of it lacking a little.
