The iPhone 4S launch seems to be working out well for AT&T with the cell service provider saying it had activated more than a million of the new combination iPods and smartphones as of Tuesday. The company also said the iPhone 4S launch was the most successful for AT&T to date.
Apple launched the iPhone 4S on Friday, October 14, and the following Monday announced that it had already sold over 4 million units. Apple also ran through a million iPhone 4S units during the first 24 hours of pre-sale orders.
Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S during a media event earlier this month. The new model uses the same body design as the iPhone 4, but includes a dual core A5 processor, a new antenna design, better battery life, built-in combination GSM and CDMA cell network support, an 8 megapixel camera, Siri voice control, and more.
Apple has since started limiting in-store iPhone 4S purchases to reservations only, and online sales are showing up to a two-week wait time.
AT&T also said that it activated 2.7 million iPhones during its September quarter.
