iPhone fever is at an all time high with the release of the latest smartphone from Apple. Orders for the iPhone 5 topped 2 million in the first 24 hours — more than double the amount of its predecessor, the 4S. Making up two-thirds of the company’s profits, the iPhone is Apple’s best selling product and has helped it to become the most valuable company in the world. This week on BTR Pulse, we visit Apple specialty store TekServe to find out more about this latest iPhone and ask people in New York about their use and thoughts on smartphones.
Featured song: “Untitled” by Tiny Victories
