Customers line up outside the Apple store on 5th Avenue awaiting the arrival of the new iphone 5 September 17, 2012 in New York. Apple said Monday that it received more than two million orders for its new iPhone 5 in 24 hours, and that many deliveries would be pushed back into October because of strong demand. "iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing. Apple unveiled the new version of its iconic smartphone last Wednesday and opened up pre-orders on Friday. The first customers in the United States and several other countries are expected to get the device September 21, but Apple said some would have to wait.AFP PHOTO/DON EMMERTDON EMMERT/AFP/GettyImages
