If you believed the sour gripe hype that the iPhone 5 is supposedly “boring”, two million pre-orders for the iPhone 5 in the first 24 hours tells a very different story, especially considering this is double the amount the iPhone 4S managed back in the same time period in 2011.
Given the fact that Apple is rolling out the iPhone 5 to more countries and more users faster than any iPhone before it, thus also making initial iPhone 5 supply greater than any previous iPhone before it, this demand is off the charts and a whopping record-breaker of iMazing proportions.
Indeed, with iPhone 5 demand already exceeding the initial bigger-than-ever supply, and with Apple saying in a press release that “the majority of pre-orders will be delivered to customers on 21 September”, demand is simply so great that “many [iPhone 5 pre-orders] are scheduled to be delivered in October”.
Pretty amazing for what is supposed to be suuuuuch a boring smartphone, eh?
Yep, if you’re one of the iDoubters out there, the iPhone 5’s thinnest and lightest status is clearly boring. So too is the inclusion of 4G LTE that works on 4G networks around the world (instead of just the US and Canada as was the case with this year's new iPad), alongside the biggest iPhone screen ever – yep, what a yawn, eh?
Most boring of all, clearly, is the fact that despite all these incredible and unmatched advances, Apple has managed to deliver the best battery life ever.
Sheesh, I can’t think of anything more boring than that… can you?
Phil Schiller, Apple’s VP of Worldwide Boreketing said that “iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal. iPhone 5 is the best iPhone yet, the most beautiful product we’ve ever made, and we hope customers love it as much as we do.”
Heck, the only thing Mr Schiller forgot to mention was just how boring this all is. I’m not even sure why you’re reading this article, considering the iPhone 5 is now, according to bloggers, the iBore 5.
Extremely bored iPhone fans have already started lining up in extremely boring lines outside of Apple’s extremely boring Apple Stores in various boring locations around the world, like the snoozefests that are Tokyo and New York, just so they can inject massive amounts of boredom into their lives.
Apple’s iPhone 5 goes on sale at the extremely boring time of 8am on Friday the 21st of September in various boring locales around the world, including boring old Australia.
The meme that the most exciting and feature-packed iPhone yet is boring?
It’s a meme that I, at least, am thoroughly bored out of my brains with, and the largest number of iPhone pre-orders ever shows that plenty out there don’t buy the pure and extremely adulterated BS that is the “boring” meme either.
Let the boring attacks by extremely tiresome and boring anti-iPhone bozos now commence in the comments below - I can’t wait to be bored out of my brains by the brouhaha that I’ll have the pleasure of reading when I wake up in a few hours.
The scathing comments you’re sure to soon be reading below will be the epitome of boring – completely unlike Apple’s most powerful, thinnest, lightest, fastest, feature packed and most genuinely exciting smartphone yet: the Apple iPhone 5.
