More than a million people placed early orders on Friday for Apple Inc's latest iPhone, the last product that the company debuted before the death of its co-founder Steve Jobs.
Orders for the iPhone 4S, which will appear on store shelves this Friday, surpassed Apple's previous one-day record of 600,000 sales for the iPhone 4.
The new phone disappointed some fans when Apple introduced it last week, but it is proving to be a bigger draw because more telephone companies are carrying it and it will appear in more countries, analysts said.
Another big factor may be Jobs. Massive outpourings of grief and sympathy over his death along with testaments to his genius and status as a visionary business leader in the media and by Apple products users online may have spurred sales.
