iPhone 5 breaks preorder records at AT&T

Last updated on July 23, 2020

With the iPhone’s growing carrier presence and the improvements in both hardware and software, it’s not much of a surprise that the smartphone’s advance orders are outselling its predecessor globally. In particular, one would expect the device to do well at Verizon, where Apple has been late to support the carrier’s now broadly available LTE network. But the iPhone 4S always had an advantage at AT&T, where its support of HSPA+ enabled faster access speeds than it did on Sprint or Verizon, where the iPhone was stuck at the slower speeds of CDMA.
