So at this rate it is 10 days for every 10 minutes.

Has anyone had their Apple.com shipments go directly from "processing" to "shipped"?

It's probably a pretty severe bell curve. I'll bet half the phones they sold were sold online in the first 15 minutes. Just a guess, but whatever the numbers, the initial rush is substantial.

Today is my 8th day in the processing stage, and I've decided to take a leap of faith. Well not really, more like a free fall with a safety net underneath. I arrived at my local Apple Store 2 hrs early, to attempt to catch lightning in a bottle. If there are phones to be had, looks like I'm first in line.

Wish me luck!
Do they change planes once they get to Alaska?

I ordered a 5S online through apple.com, and it hasn't shipped yet. I am able to cancel the order, which I want to as I now want the 5C. If I cancel my order on apple.com, will AT&T know, and reset my upgrade eligibility?

Don't think so. Just a short layover (maybe for refueling) then off to Kentucky.

I doubt it. If this is the case, the ones who ordered after the 20th will get their phones next year?

Unless the majority of the online orders were made within the first hours on launch day, it's amazing that Apple's still quoting "October" for orders made today. If they're having so much trouble fulfilling orders now, how in the hell are they gonna make sure that those people are served before the end of the month?

Well I was able to pick up a 16gb space grey 5s from a Walmart in Carmel, Indiana last Sunday.

I went to the apple store first and they didn't have anything ATT. Called best buy, and Walmart near there. Tried the Walmart in Carmel as a last hope on my way home and they had one.

Was also able to pick up an ATT blue 16gb 5c this past Saturday for my wife at Best Buy, East Washington in Indianapolis.

Problem now is her phone is newer than mine

That seems to be the case for me.

I ordered my 5s (64gb slate) online from Apple at 12:15am PST on 9/20. I was first quoted 10/8 - 10/11. I was pissed but it wasn't that big a deal to me. It was more the principle. I called yesterday just to voice my displeasure, and they offered expedited shipping without my asking. But it turns out it only moves it up by one day. The rep says it comes directly from China.

I've ordered every iphone starting with the 4. Never has my shipment been pushed back before and this has been pushed back 3 times. (I ordered it the morning it was released) Now I have an estimated ship date of OCT 9-11. It was supposed to be here in September. Grrrrrrr. Seems like they really screwed the pooch with this release

This is honestly getting ridiculous. Into my 10th day now, and still processing. At least the "magic well" that the Apple Stores have been dipping into for supply, seems to be drying out. So no more bull... hopefully.

No, I stayed up all night however there was such a low supply in the UK that they channeled them to the stores... I was very displeased about this and haven't actually received it yet.. Next Monday... Hopefully

Same... Absolutely ridiculous since I ordered mine at 12.01pm when it was released because I knew that there was such a short supply of them..

Angry I know they are in short supply but come on.

Okay it's October now. Can we get a slightly better ETA than "October"?

Got mine today - what a BEAST

TouchID is amazing and works perfectly.

Some apps are a lot more fluid, mainly camera and games.

Loving space grey after owning white phones for so long!

Could Apple have messed up the 5s launch more ?

Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to how items are shipping really . I ordered 64gb Gold Unlocked from Apple Uk and have been in ' Processing Limbo ' since early on launch day After all the hype and everyone looking forward to their new ' Precioussss' it feels a bit like cancelling Christmas having to wait for ' October' whatever that means .

I rang Apple today and spoke to a ' robot ' ( a real one actually ) which just read me my ' Processing' details from the Order Status page. Lotta help !

I hope someone stands up at the next Apple AGM and points out that profits would have been even better had they actually produced enough phones for launch day .

By the time my iPhone 5s arrives there could be less than 11 months to go to
iPhone 6 lol .......
