Apple Inc. on Monday said that its new iPhone 4S has broken previous preorder record, hitting more than 1 million sales in the first day, despite complaints by fans that the device is a “mere modification” of its predecessor.

According to reports, Apple recorded more than 1 million preorder sales as of Friday, beating the previous one-day record of 600,000 units last year.

Apple said the iPhone 4S will be available by Friday in seven countries – including the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Japan, and United Kingdom. It will be available in 22 other countries by the end of this month.

With three wireless carriers now selling iPhone 4S in the United States, the company expects figures to go further up in the coming weeks.

Preorders for the new iPhone 4S was opened a day after Apple announced the death of its co-founder Steve Jobs.

But analysts said that the one-day preorder record set by the new device may be short-lived, noting that many of the Apple fans would buy the latest iPhone model to commemorate Jobs.

Fans have earlier expressed disappointment over the unveiling of the iPhone 4S – which they claimed is a “mere modification” of the iPhone 4 with longer battery life, new software, and faster chip.
