“We are blown away with the incredible customer response to iPhone 4S,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
“The first day pre-orders for iPhone 4S have been the most for any new product that Apple has ever launched and we are thrilled that customers love iPhone 4S as much as we do.”
iPhone 4S will be available at all 13 Apple retail stores in Australia beginning at 8am AEDT on Friday, 14 October. You can also find it at the Apple Online Store and and select Apple Authorised Resellers.
