CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) -- Apple says it has sold more than 5 million units of the new iPhone 5 in the three days since its launch.
Apple Inc. said Monday that orders for the phone exceeded the initial supply it had available. The iPhone 5 went on sale Friday in the U.S., Australia and elsewhere.
It will be available in 22 more countries this Friday and in more than 100 countries by the end of the year.
Apple says it has shipped most of the phones that were ordered in advance. But it plans to ship many of them in October.
