Four million iPhone 4S sold
Apple says it has sold four million iPhone 4S since 14th October.

Apple has announced that over four million iPhone 4S models have sold globally since its launch on 14th October.

According to Apple, more than 25 million customers are already using iOS 5 in the first five days of its release, and more than 20 million customers have signed up for iCloud.

iCloud is a set of free cloud services that stores your content in iCloud and pushes it to all your devices.

The iPhone 4S was made available yesterday in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the UK, and will be sold in 22 more countries on 28th October 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."

The iPhone 4S has been slammed by market critics as despite a multitude of changes on the inside, it looks identical to the iPhone 4.

The new iPhone now features Apple's dual-core A5 chip, an all new camera with advanced optics, full 1080p HD resolution video recording, and Siri, a voice recognition system.

The iPhone 4S comes in either black or white and is available in the US for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the new 64GB model.

The iPhone 4S is available from the Apple Online Store, Apple's retail stores and selected Apple Authorised Resellers in the countries which it has launched. 

The iPhone 4S will be available on 28th October in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
