After selling 4 million iPhone 4S units in 3 days since the launch, Apple has hit the mark with selling 16 iPhones per second or roughly 1,000 per minute. With these numbers, the iPhone 4S is actually on its track to be the fastest selling gadget ever.


Shawn Blanc made some calculations this morning to get the above results. The iPhone 4S can be the fastest selling gadget every by passing the fastest selling consumer device of all time, Microsoft’s Kinect. Microsoft has sold 8 million Kinects in the first 60 days.

With 4 million iPhone 4S units in 3 days, Apple can get that number in two weeks.

Apple’s iPhone 4S showed a great success for some reasons. First of, I would say because of Siri voice assistant. This feature called Siri has really changed the world and everyone wants it now on their old devices.

Other things that the iPhone 4S comes for the first time as a world phone on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. More networks and options mean more customers!

Great milestone, Apple!
