  • Consumers to See iPhone 6s Shipment Delays As Pope Francis Visits NYC and Philadelphia


    Apple is launching their new iPhone 6s lineup next Friday, while many others who preordered the device were told they would be receiving the shipment on Friday as well. But those who live in New York and Philadelphia should also already know that Pope Francis will be vising these two cities next week. New reports are saying that due to Pope Francis’s visit, shipments may possibly be delayed.

    One of Apple’s chosen carriers UPS already updated their website with a ‘temporary service notice’ recently. The notice announced that due to security measures, no deliveries and pickups would be available from Thursday September 24th to Saturday September 26th at select zip codes in the two cities. This means that some customers may be receiving their new iPhones the following Monday.

    Neighborhoods in New York City affected by this include areas in Civic Center, Midtown, Chelsea, East Harlem, Upper East Side, Tribeca, and Upper West Side as all affected areas are in Manhattan. In Philadelphia however, affected areas are much more than NYC. Apple also uses FedEx to deliver their products but the carrier hasn’t announced anything yet, so we’ll have to wait and see. This could mean that some customers may receive their device on Friday while others have to wait past the weekend.

    Zip codes that won’t be receiving deliveries or allowing pickups are:

    New York City: 10001, 10007, 10017, 10021, 10022, 10023, 10029

    Philadelphia: 19102, 19103, 19104, 19106, 19107, 19109, 19123, 19130, 19146, 19147
