iPhone 5 Shipping Times Begin to Improve to Only One Week
We’ve been keeping close tabs on the shipping time status of the iPhone 5 and just recently the shipping times have improved from three weeks to only two weeks
. The improvements in shipping time illustrates how supply is finally catching up with the rather large demand for Apple's newest iPhone.
reports that Apple’s Web site is displaying an improved one-week shipping estimate for people in the Asia-Pacific region, which indicates that the US Apple Store Web site should be dropping to a one-week shipping time very shortly.
Some customers have had more luck walking into third party retailers such as Best Buy, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint and have been able to find iPhone 5 units in stock with no waiting times for shipping attached. This is, of course, a luck-of-the-draw situation that will be more common in some locations, but not necessarily others.
As shipping times continue to show signs of waning, now is the time to purchase an iPhone 5 if you have always wanted one, or if you want to get a few just in time for the holidays.
