The demand for Iphone 5, the thinnest smartphone in the world, has exceeded the initial supply after Apple unveiled the new version of its iconic smartphone. In the first 24 hours of availability, iPhone 5 pre-orders topped 2 million, Apple has announced. More than 5 million iPhone 5 phones were sold in the first three days, setting a new sales record for the device.
Besides a slimmer and far lighter screen with an extra row of home screen icons, a faster 4G network has hit the iPhone 5, which also comes with a number of software updates, including Apple’s new in-house maps feature. The newest model of Apple is designed with a new and long-anticipated smaller “Lightning“dock connector, which visibly reduces the footprint of the old 30 pin iPhone dock. The headphones port's new position on the bottom satisfies users’ expectation for a new version of iPhone. Moreover, the 5 runs A6 chip, which is faster as twice as the previous A5. In addition, the latest IPhone's display colors are bright and rich (it has 44 percent more color saturation than the 4S), text is expectedly crisp, and high-resolution images look stunning.
Apple Inc. (AAPL) says advance sales of its iPhone 5 topped 2 million units in one day, more than double the record set by the previous model of the device. Two color combinations of the new model are White and Silver, and Black and Slate. However, the White and Silver iPhone 5 looks more elegant.
The headphone’s position on the bottom and smaller dock connector look more fashionable and comfortable for users.

The iPhone 5 gets an additional microphone for a total of three. You'll find one on the bottom, one on the handset's front face, and one on its rear side.
Some sales reps claim that Apple’s Lightning to 30-pin adapter is not included with the iPhone 5. Buyers who need the adapter for existing devices will have to pony up $29 for a small stub adapter or $39 for a 7-inch adapter cable.
