Top 5 Things that Sold the 2 Million iPhones

Earlier this week, Apple announced that it received 2 million iPhone 5 pre-orders in the first 24 hours. That is a very impressive number that made us think, how did they get this number? This is my answer to this question. (This article is based on my personal thoughts and opinions, NOT a scientific one)

#5: Having Everything Updated
All the previous generation iPhones came with a killer feature that forced everyone to buy the iPhone, except for the iPhone 5 which had no killer feature, but had everything updated. It had a new look, better processor, better browsing experience, new dock, new "Earpods" and more

#4: iOS
There are a lot of Android phones that have better hardware than the iPhone, but the main reason that made people stick to their iPhones is the software. iOS is an awesome mobile operating system that has amazed the world since it first came out in 2007.

#3: 4G
Years after other phones, the iPhone finally had 4G LTE connectivity, which made the previous generations users update to the iPhone 5.

#2: New Look
The iPhone 5 finally came out with a new awesome look, with 4" display, and the thinner design. Having a new look in the iPhone was something people have been looking up to.

#1: Apple Fanboys
The Apple fanboys loyalty was a huge reason for the iPhone's success. Without them, Apple wouldn't reach 2M with this phone.

What do you think about the iPhone 5's success? How do you think Apple reached such a number?
