It was just last week when news crammed up the web surrounding the much anticipated release of stylish iPhone 5 at the press event in San Francisco. And yesterday, in a press note, Apple disclosed that the new iPhone 5, broke the record of any iPhone model on the first day of its pre-order and over the weekend.

The much-created hype and exciting features of the stylish iPhone 5 led to the surge of demand, which made this model break all sales records that were earlier set by the iPhone 4S.

In a statement by Apple, the firm said the pre-orders of iPhone 5 topped two million in first 24 hours, more than twice the record set by the iPhone 4S last year, which was one million.

The Cupertino Calif.-based company said the demand of iPhone 5 exceeded its supply and although first few orders will be shipped on 21st Sept., many will be delivered in October.
