Jobs: iPhone 4 Marks Best Launch Ever

CUPERTINO, Calif. ( TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL - Get Report) has already shipped a massive 1.7 million iPhone 4s.

In a statement released before market open, Apple confirmed that it sold more than 1.7 million units of the new iPhone through Saturday, just three days after its launch on June 24.

"This is the most successful product launch in Apple's history," Apple CEO Jobs said in a statement. "Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply."

Both Apple and its telecom partner AT&T (T - Get Report) have struggled to meet the deluge of demand for the new iPhone. Apple also announced that manufacturing issues had forced the tech giant to push back availability of the white iPhone 4.

Despite reports of problems with the antenna on the new iPhone 4, the new phone looks set to be another Apple blockbuster. With its 1.7 million units shipped, the new iPhone 4 has easily surpassed initial demand for the popular iPhone 3GS, which saw a million units shipped in its first three days.

Apple shares dipped 2 cents, or 0.01%, to $266.68 in pre-market trading.
