    Default Apple Reinstates In-Store Pickup Option for iPhone 5S


    Last Tuesday, MMi confirmed that Apple halted the in-store pickup option for buyers who purchased their new iPhone 5S online. The option had first become available to shoppers just 24 hours earlier.

    In response to overwhelming demand and limited supply, Apple had no choice but to suspend this convenience... that is, until today. As of Monday, iPhone 5S buyers are once again seeing in-store pickup as an option during check-out.

    Curiously, however, this change of course today doesn't mean that Apple's supply problem is improving. In fact, new iPhone 5S orders come only with the notification that shipment will take place in October. We don't know if that means early, mid, or late October.

    Although Apple confirmed one week ago that it sold 9 million new iPhones in their opening sales weekend, the company hasn't provided any details since to indicate whether or not the sales momentum has continued. By all accounts, industry analysts say, the pace of sales has likely picked up in recent days.

    Wow nice for Apple, 9 million iphones sold, but only 5 million shipped. I wonder how many people will be canceling their orders soon.

    If you're ordering a gold iphone figure late October at the earliest. I ordered mine at 3:03am est on the 20th and I got a second week of october ship time. So it was a 3 week wait minutes from the time they started taking orders. None in any stores near me, not even in other states near me.

    Yeah, go to the apple web store and then choose in store pickup and it will let you know if any near you have any in stock.

    Which at this time are just about none. Why open in-store pickup, if there are none in store for pickup...

    You may get it sooner. I went into an AT&T store last week on the 23rd in hopes of ordering a 32gb in silver, an employee told me that their computers were saying it was 21-28 days before the phone would arrive at their location and 28-35 days for the gold. So I sad eff that. The next day I ordered one off the AT&T website, said it would ship within 7-14 days, well it's only been 6 days since then and FedEx says it's out for delivery today....so yeah.

    It depends on your carrier I think. I ordered mine on the 21st and the shipping date says October....

    I'm on AT&T.

    I ordered mine (i5S Gold) from ATT on Sep 20 and it initially said ship time would be Oct 1 - Oct 31 but I got an email saying it was shipped out on Sat (Sep 28) and it is out for delivery today, Mon. Sep 30. Counting all days from the day I ordered it till today ~10 days. Not too bad...

    For a gold 5S, that's damn good!! I believe retail stores are giving you the worst case scenario, cause they told me 21-28 days and I got mine in 6.
