Apple has announced it has sold more than two million iPhone 5s its first 24 hours of being for sale. Keep in mind the iPhone 4S broke a record when it launched by selling about a million in the first 24 hours, doubling in immediate sales this time around. The majority of customers will receive their phones by Sept. 21, when the phone officially arrives in stores. BUT, the bad news: the demand outweighed the supply and now some people will have to wait until October until their orders arrive. [NYT]
