Last week, the company had reported more than 1 million in pre-sales for the new device. And telecom providers said U.S. pre-orders sold out.
The phone will become available in 22 more countries on Oct. 28 and more than 70 countries by the end of the year.
“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 vp 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.”
