First-day pre-orders of Apple's iPhone 4S in America have topped one million, breaking the record set by last year's model.
Apple and phone companies started taking orders for the phone last Friday. It hits stores this Friday.
First-day orders for the iPhone 4 were 600,000 when it launched last year. It was then sold in the US only by AT&T. The iPhone 4S is also sold by Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp.
The base model of the iPhone 4S costs 200 dollars (£128) with a two-year contract. It has a faster processor and an improved camera compared to last year's model.
