Apple's App Store, the iPhone 4 and a few iOS games, have been awarded Guinness world records, including the iPhone 4 being named the fastest-selling portable gaming system."The release of the iPhone has not just changed the mobile industry, but the video game world too,"Gaz Deaves, Guinness World Records' gaming editor, said in a statement.
