  • 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.

Mine says "prepared for shipment" on Apple, but UPS shows that my iPhone has shipped from China.
      Awesome! Thanks I'm not so worried anymore

      Don't worry. I'm sure there are thousands of tracking numbers that just need to be updated on their end.

      This happened before - and I got the new device before FEDEX even showed it as shipped.

      I tried to check on this - but since we are corporate we don't see any charges until the bill arrives.

      Another weird thing - 3 of my phones shipped UPS and the 4th shipped via FedEx. All ordered same time too..

      Made the mistake of ordering with AT&T 2-upgrades back to back. Now one shows shipped and the other backordered? Really? I did them at the exact same time...
      Mine arrived in TX and then went to KY just like yours and eventually will end up in CA. Seems like the long way but whatever.... Last year my order took the same strange trip. Always the long way and then will show stuck somewhere for a while and miraculously it will instantly jump to CA... I just hope they both arrive tomorrow.. Today would be really nice like last year but it doesn't look good so far
