Lucky iPhone 5 Customers See Improved Arrival Dates
Early iPhone 5 orders might be shipping sooner than originally advertised based on e-mails that are being sent out by Apple. According to AppleInsider
, one of their readers who was quoted for an arrival date of two weeks received the following email that informing them of the improved arrival date:
Apple’s online store began quoting customers for an estimated shipping time of two weeks just an hour after preorders of the iPhone 5 began early Friday morning. Apple officials were “completely blown away” by the demand for the iPhone 5. As of today, Apple’s online store indicated that all models of the iPhone 5 are available to ship in two to three weeks. The device is set to become publicly available this upcoming Friday, September 21. Apple’s carrier partners are also selling the iPhone 5 at launch but AT&T and Verizon have been completely sold out of their launch-day inventory as well.
For those of you who missed out on preordering an iPhone 5 for launch, you can still attempt to buy Apple’s latest handset at a brick-and-mortar store for Friday’s launch. Apple’s retail stores announced selling the iPhone 5 at 8:00 AM local time on the 21st and retail partners such as Best Buy, Radio Shack, and Walmart will also have inventory on the same day.
