  • Apple Begins Shipping iPhone 4S


    We've begun receiving word from readers that Apple has started shipping the iPhone 4S. Two screenshots provided to us by one reader come from UPS and Apple, respectively. From the looks of it, the device has been shipped by Apple and is out for delivery on October 14th.



    This tidbit comes on the heels of scant reports across Europe suggesting that the iPhone 4S has already arrived in some places. Specifically, a handful of customers in Germany report having their iPhone 4S delivered within the past 24 hours, well ahead of the anticipated Friday arrival.

    Per Apple's official unveiling of the device earlier this month, the official launch date of the iPhone 4S is this Friday, October 14th. At that time, not only will the device become available in stores, but devices preordered during the last week will also arrive. Unfortunately, however, if you're yet to place a preorder for the iPhone 4S, good luck acquiring one this Friday. Apple now pegs shipping times for new orders at 1 to 2 weeks.

    As MMi reported over the weekend, Apple saw 1 million sales of the iPhone 4S on its first day of preorder availability.

      I received a call from my local Best Buy where I preordered to come in at seven am tomorrow to pick mine up. They are opening early and doing appointments only. I asked them if they had it in their hands and they definitely do.

      This is not the case with AT&T. I was going to do this exact thing, and then decided to look at AT&T's contract breaking rules...its $150 to break the contract...BUT if its an iphone contract...its $350 Definitely not cheaper than the $250 early upgrade price

      I ordered mine at 7:15am Friday morning and it still says Preparing for Shipment and delivers on the 14th. I should have set my alarm for 2am and maybe I'd have mine tomorrow!

      i pre-ordered 4 lines for myself and 3 other co-workers.

      My iPhone is the only one of the 4 that says "Back-Ordered"

      32GB White ATT

      what gives? I placed the order through Business Premier by phone.

      Are you Business Premier also?

      Go to ups website click on "Tracking" in the top bar and then click "Track by Reference". In the "Shipment Reference" enter the phone number (no dashes) you used to preorder you phone through Apple and click track. Mine says "prepared for shipment" on Apple, but UPS shows that my iPhone has shipped from China.

      Nearly twenty-four hours since arriving in Louisville, it's still there. No departure scan to indicate that it's moving on to Texas. Guess UPS has been instructed to hold?

      Most likely. Mine is still in Alaska. They're probably keeping the delivery date for Friday. Two more days.

      I was hoping there would be a repeat of last year in which a lot of folks received theirs a day early, and hoping that I might be one of those folks.

      Two more days...twenty-nine years old and I feel like six on Christmas Eve.
