iPhone 4S

Enterprise iPhone 4S activations surged in Q4

There are a lot of words and phrases that could be used to describe Apple’s fiscal first quarter financial results. Amongst them: incredible, unbelievable, record-breaking and earth-shattering.

Strong (to put it modestly) sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs produced over $46bn in revenue and a mind-boggling net profit of more than $13bn.

When it came to the iPhone, the company’s latest, the iPhone 4S, proved to be a winner, with more than 37m units sold in the quarter, which covered the all-important holiday shopping season.

Despite pundit criticism, the iPhone 4S is selling like hotcakes

When Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S last week, reaction from the media was generally mixed. With many anticipating the launch of the iPhone 5, many pundits quickly labeled the 4S a disappointment.

But don’t tell that to consumers. The iPhone 4S is selling like hotcakes. In the first 12 hours of taking pre-orders, AT&T had already sold 200,000 units.

By the end of the day Friday, pre-order stocks were sold out across all three carriers in the U.S. offering the iPhone, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. The same thing reportedly happened in other countries where 4S pre-orders were being accepted.
