AT&T announced early Monday morning that it set a sales record after offering the iPhone 5. The carrier noted that the new iPhone was the fastest selling iPhone it has ever offered. AT&T has offered every model of the device since its launch in 2007. Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 began on Friday and it will be available in stores on Sept. 21, although shipping times for the device have already started to slip to as long as two weeks after an order is placed.

AT&T noted that sales exceeded both first-day preorders and weekend orders.
