Apple’s iPhone is once again seeing overwhelming pre-orders and was sold out in the first day itself. The Verizon carrier has temporarily stopped taking further orders. The iPhones from Verizon were made available for only the existing customers of Verizon.
But still, because of increased response, the company’s website was temporarily inaccessible. Verizon and Apple have announced that they would take further orders from February 9 while the phones will be sold in retail stores starting on February 10 from 7 a.m. onwards.
This is the first time Verizon is selling Apple’s iPhone. Before this, US-based telecom carrier AT&T was enjoying the sole rights of selling Apple’s iPhone the country. Recently, Apple unleashed its iPhone to Verizon.
The pre-orders for iPhones were started from Thursday, shortly after which the company appears to have ran out of stock. However, details of the number of iPhones booked so far is not available.
Recently, Verizon urged its employees not to buy iPhones for themselves or their families expecting more demand.
