Apple’s announced that 1.7 million units of the fourth generation iPhone have been sold since its worldwide release last week.

CEO Steve Jobs has said the launch of the tech has been “the most successful” in the company’s history.

That’s despite recent reports of issues such as bugs and the “grip of death,” with signal being affected by the way the device is held.

“This is the most successful product launch in Appleā€™s history. Even so, we apologise to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply,” said Jobs.

The hardware was announced earlier this month after a massive leak in April.

Thanks, MCV.
