  • Shipping Times for iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Already Slip to Two Weeks


    Just a little over one hour after pre-orders for Appleís iPhone 5 opened up at midnight on Friday, the device shipping times increased to two weeks for all models. That means it took less than two hours for Apple to run dry of its initial batch of iPhone 5s, with the company already quoting a two-week wait time for customers who are still interested.

    Although a sellout was expected from analysts and consumers, many didnít think it would happen so quickly. It currently hasn't been made clear whether Apple actually sold more units than the previous iPhone 4S launch, which took nearly 24 hours to run through its stock or if the company had less stock on hand to begin with.

    If you still havenít purchased the iPhone 5 yet and want to grab one on launch day, your options are limited to visiting the brick-and-mortar Apple store or going to an Apple reseller such as Best Buy or Walmart on the day of the iPhone 5ís official release (September 21). As of right now, some are saying carriers still have some stock left over but chances are that wonít last too long either if it is true to begin with.

    Were you able to pre-order yours?

      When they ship it, they will email you the tracking number so be patient man. Don't worry apple is very good at keeping their delivery date promises. They usually ship their iPhones via overnight shipping.
