Cupertino’s newest hardware may have us purring, but Apple hasn’t left those of us with existing hardware out in the cold. iOS 6 should be appearing as an available update right now, or at least very shortly — depending on how taxed those servers get. It’ll be compatible with every iPhone since the 3GS, iPod touch 4G / 5G and this-and-last-year’s vintage of the iPad. Given the inexorable march of technology, some of the newer features won’t work on the older devices, but you can use our compatability checker to determine what new things you’ll be able to do in the next few hours.

iPhone 5 pre-orders hit 2M in 24 hours, doubles iPhone 4S record

Following AT&T’s announcement this morning, Apple confirmed 2 million pre-orders in 24 hours. That statistic more than doubles the pre-order record of approximately 1 million units held by the iPhone 4S (600,000 for iPhone 4). Apple also noted demand is exceeding its initial supply and some pre-order customers will not receive their device until October. For those doing the math, that is 83,333 units an hour (or 1,388 a minute, or 23 a second, etc.) over the first day. That’s enough iPhone 5 boxes to stretch 190 miles (or 1 million feet). It is Interesting that iPhone 5 pre-orders seem to line up with Phil Schiller’s statement about new iPhones selling as much as all previous generations combined—an observation we like to refer to as “Schiller’s Law”.
