iPhone 3G S sales surpass 1m units

Firmware 3.0 downloads growing...

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Apple has announced that over 1m iPhone 3G S units have been sold since the handset was launched last week.

The firm’s keeping specific 3G S sales figures for individual countries close to its chest, but O2 today confirmed to Register Hardware that the figure does include its own UK sales tally.

The iPhone 3G S was released in Blighty on 19 June – exactly one year after Apple’s earlier model arrived in the UK.

And just hours after the 3G S’ UK launch, O2 announced that it had already sold more 3G S units than it sold iPhone 3Gs on launch day 2008. But, again, specific numbers were not released.

Roughly 6m iPhone owners have also already downloaded that latest version of iPhone firmware – version 3.0 - since 17 June, Apple added. ®
