Apple just posted a press release announcing debut iPhone 5 sales topped 5 million units sold since going on sale on Friday and pre-order Sept. 14.
The numbers released by Apple today do not include all of the 2M pre-orders it announced earlier.
Apple only counts pre-order sales once they?ve been delivered and signed for by the customer. This means that the 5M number could be inflated by millions when those devices end up touching down in the hands of consumers.
The Cupertino-based company also announced 100 million iOS devices are now running iOS 6.
Here's what Tim Cook had to say:While we have sold out of our initial supply, stores continue to receive iPhone 5 shipments regularly and customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date. We appreciate everyone?s patience and are working hard to build enough iPhone 5s for everyone.
The sales so far are 100%, completely supply constrained. That means that we really have no idea how many iPhones Apple could have sold if it had made enough.
