Les précommandes records laissaient présager des ventes elles aussi records. C’est désormais officiel. Alors que l’iPhone 4S n’est commercialisé que dans sept pays (États-Unis, Canada, Royaume-Uni, France, Allemagne, Australie et Japon), Apple annonce le chiffre de 4 millions d’appareils vendus en seulement trois jours, soit plus du double que l’iPhone 4. Ce chiffre devrait encore gonfler dans les semaines à venir avec l’arrivée de l’iPhone 4S sur d’autres marchés à partir du 28 octobre (22 pays supplémentaires).

Apple indique par ailleurs que 25 millions d’appareils fonctionnent sous iOS 5 et que 20 millions de comptes iCloud ont été créés. Belle performance.

Voici le communiqué d’Apple (en anglais) :

« Apple today announced it has sold over four
million of its new iPhone® 4S, just three days after its launch on
October 14. In addition, more than 25 million customers are already
using iOS 5, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, in the
first five days of its release, and more than 20 million customers have
signed up for iCloud®, a breakthrough set of free cloud services that
automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and push it to
all your devices. iPhone 4S is available today in the US, Australia,
Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the UK, and will be available in 22
more countries on October 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 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. »

iPhone 4S is the most amazing iPhone yet, packed with incredible new
features including Apple’s dual-core A5 chip for blazing fast
performance and stunning graphics; an all new camera with advanced
optics; full 1080p HD resolution video recording; and Siri, an
intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking ».
