iPhone 5 Shipping Estimates Begin to Drop to One Week




Less than a week after shipping estimates for new iPhone 5 orders through Apple's online stores dropped to two weeks, availability continues to improve with the company's stores for the Asia-Pacific region now quoting one-week estimates. Apple's online store distribution channels for other regions continue to show two-week estimates, but those should similarly drop to one week shortly.

Continued improvement of shipping estimates comes as the holiday shopping season kicks off and Apple works toward its goal of making the device available in at least 100 countries by the end of the year.

I don't believe a word of it. How are they going to ship new orders in one week when my order from over three weeks ago isn't due to ship for another week? It just doesn't add up. I wouldn't be surprised if they're fudging the shipment dates so they don't lose out on holiday sales.

They finally get shipments moving, just in time for the announcement of the iPhone 5s. And then the cycle will begin again.

This is good news, not only for purchasers of the IP5, but for Apple's production runs in general. I'm still convinced that issues with the IP5's assembly pushed back the production line scheduling, resulting in the delay we are seeing with the new iMacs.

Hopefully things are catching up now, and I still hold out hope that my buddy will get his new 21" Imac before Christmas.

Placed an order on 11/11 and it stated 2-3 weeks. Its still processing, hasn't budged since I ordered. Currently in week 2 now so they have about a week to get it shipped and delivered to meet the 3 week deadline.

I ordered mine on October 19, it shipped on November 13, and arrived on November 19. I was busy all week and was only able to activate it this Saturday the 24, the additional week that I waited really sucked because I had it wasn't able to use it due to things I needed to do to my iMac (software updates and such). Anyway, I have the AT&T version of the iPhone 5. Though, I did order directly from Apple because I wanted it to come directly from the factory made my little Chinese hands.

When I got the now-outdated iPad 3, I got quoted a 4 week ship date, ended up getting it a day later at the store (and cancelling my iPad 3 order online). I wonder how their supply chain works.

Very frustrating, as I ordered mine about 1 month ago. It will arrive later this week...

Happy for those getting it sooner. I just don't get why my order never moved up, as shipping estimates dropped. It's almost as if all iPhone orders from the last 5 weeks will ship this/next week.

I ordered mine on Friday and it looks like people who order today will be getting their iPhones before me. Maybe I should just cancel and reorder.

Just checked my order from earlier today - originally it said "ships in 2-3 weeks with delivery on December 19th", and now it says "ships in 3-5 business days with delivery December 7th-11th!"

Same here too. Same date. I'm getting quite mad about it. Tempted to cancel and re-order to see if it speeds up. Oh and the order status page on the website has gone down. Not that the cynic in me sees any connection or anything....
