The company also reported that more than 100 million iOS devices have been updated with iOS 6.

The figures come after Apple reported last week that it had received 2 million orders for the iPhone 5 in the first 24 hours in which it was available. The total weekend sales dwarf those for the iPhone 4S. Apple sold 4 million of those phones in that product's opening weekend which itself was a record; it took Apple three weeks to sell the comparable number of iPhone 4s in 2010.
Analysts surveyed by Bloomberg earlier this month predicted that Apple will sell 58 million iPhone 5 devices before the end of the year and receive $36.2 billion in revenues for the device. Other analysts have predicted sales of as much as 10 million units of the iPhone 5 this month. If the analysts’ predictions prove correct, then the sales will eclipse that of Apple’s fiscal first quarter — the first quarter in which the iPhone 4S was available — when the company sold 37 million iPhones.
