iPhone Coming From China

I guess I'm just uninformed or don't keep up enough on these threads but my new iPhone 5 is being shipped from Zheng Zhou, China. Another strange thing is in the shipping information under Product it says: World Ease. have no idea what that means.

Yup ships from china and world ease is a shipping method. They get multiple packages and bundle them together, it helps to clear customs quicker and then when it get to UPS world Port in Louisville they break it apart and ship off to their destinations.

I would contact Apple and demand that they send you a USA manufactured iPhone. After all, you did pay a premium price for it.

I think the op just means that it's not shipping from stock here in the US.
