New Online iPhone 5s Orders Set for November Delivery
It's yet another compelling illustration of the iPhone 5s supply shortages that Apple is struggling with today.
According to a number of readers we've heard from in the last 24 hours, new online orders placed with Apple for the iPhone 5s are producing estimated shipping times of 2-3 weeks.
As recently as Thursday, Apple was still showing estimated October delivery dates for new orders. But now we are clearly in November territory.
Unfortunately, this supply shortage fiasco can be expected to worsen as the iPhone 5s goes on sale in 50 new markets between October 25th and November 1st.
It should be noted, however, that these protracted delivery estimates are not unique to the United States. iPhone 5s buyers from Canada and Australia are reporting similar shipping time estimates. New iPhone buyers in China are also being told to expect delivery in early to mid-November.
