Apple officially announced today that no more than 4 million of iPhone 4S devices have been sold to date both by pre-ordering and after the official release in stores. The company claims that over 25 million users have installed on their devices the new iOS 5 and over 20 million users have registered to icloud.

Last year Apple sold 1.7 million iPhone 4 devices in the launch weekend but this year the numbers have doubled in the Cupertino company sold no less than 4 million iPhone 4S devices although initially very few people wanted the new device.

“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend—the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Philip Schiller”

So far Apple has sold 250 million iDevice’s and if they were all active, 10% of them would have already installed iOS 5. The number of people who use icloud is only of 5 million but less likely in future figures will be equal.

Considering that in just one week Apple sold 4 million of iPhone 4S devices in the coming months the company could sell tens of millions of such devices and would be able to keep the title of largest manufacturer of smartphones to global level.
