Shipping Estimates for New iPhone 5 Orders Begin to Improve




For the first time, shipping estimates for new orders of the iPhone 5 placed through Apple's online store have improved, suggesting that Apple and Foxconn may now be getting a handle on production issues and making progress toward meeting demand for the popular device.

Shipping estimates which had been at 3-4 weeks since just a few days after pre-orders went live nearly two months ago, have now improved to 2-3 weeks. The new shipping estimates appear to be in effect for most of Apple's online stores around the world where the iPhone 5 is sold online.

In comparison, the iPhone 4S took roughly three months to begin coming down from its peak of 1-2 week shipping estimates, reaching supply-demand balance approximately three and a half months after the device launched. But with the iPhone 5 experiencing lengthier shipping estimates and Apple aggressively rolling out the device to over 100 countries by the end of the year, shortages may yet persist for some time.

The iPad 4 has spoiled some of you. I would not count on an iPhone 5s before March, but maybe they will not wait until Sept/Oct 2013...

My preorder of the iPhone 5 still states "Available to ship: 3 - 4 Weeks" when I check the status, hopefully that gets adjusted soon.

You will always be left out in the big upgrade cycle.

People buying iphone 4 get to upgrade to iphone 5 but poor people now who had iphone 4S are waiting for their 2 yr contract to get expired. I am sure people waiting for 5S will wait for 6 as they won't be happy with that upgrade as well lol

All the S will be poor upgrade Get in the train of getting real upgrade of 5,6,7 not @sses---> sorry S'sss

Your S'ss will soon be downgraded by real upgrades. Looks like you want outdated technology for higher prices in the name of S!

No i think Ssss are solid. iPhone 4S is very fast compared to iPhone 4.

Also, you can get the screen protector, cases and other accessories that cheaper and do not need to wait for these accessories.

I want the 6s not the lousy outdated 5s. I may wait for the 7s though. I want the best one I can get. Maybe I should wait for the 8s?

Check cellular carrier website. Verizon and Sprint both have one-week delay, and AT&T actually dropped any backorder delay.

And I'm sure Wall Street will use this as another reason to punish the stock somehow. Supply finally catching up with demand! Nobody wants iPhones anymore! Sell sell sell!!!



I almost hate reading Apple news anymore. Even the best news gets turned into a crisis or a "gate".

Seriously: After 2 months of constantly getting told that "Sorry, we don't have any iPhones currently in stock" in the Apple Store, they can take their iPhone 5 and shove it up their a**. Not feeling the desire to buy one anymore.

I'll be waiting for the 5S now.

Don't worry, when the 5S come out, you'll have 2 months of constantly getting told that "Sorry, we don't have any iPhones currently in stock" in the Apple Store.

Not being Pro or Con on this, one can find a 5 at their local store with some effort. The stores receive 5's just about every day. Now I can only speak for the information from my local Brick and Mortar. My wife was up for a new phone.

So, I did the 10p-4a thing. Now the first time they had phones just not in our 32g. The second time they had our carrier in 32g but only black. On the 5th try (over a 8 day period) I hit nothing at all till I quit at 10:45p.

So I watched the 11p News. On my way to bed I decided to try one quick time. It was 11:38p. Bingo, White at&t 32g in stock. Purchased and picked up the next day.

Also, while she was picking up the 5 I noticed another person come in looking for a 64g Verizon. They had it in stock.

Waiting another month, or ordering online with a wait would have been less time consuming. But you can find phones local if your persistent.

Just be prepared for a HEAVY push toward accessories while you pick up in the store. It's part of the deal. A well placed Straight Arm usually works.

You and I would say that.

Wall Street will say that it means sales are not brisk enough.

Apple haters will say that nobody wants iPhones anymore.
