Does making order changes put you further back on iPhone 5s shipping?

    I placed order my gold 16GB iPhone 5s at 12.08am PT and received confirmation email 7-10 days available to ship. 2 hours later I called Apple and upgraded to expedite shipping. I then received another order change confirmation email which reflected the expedite shipping (although the email still said 7-10 days available to ship). Did this "order change" put me further back in the queue as if I placed the order 2 hours later? Does anyone know? Thanks!

    I guess the only thing I've got going for me was that the confirmation email still confirmed 7-10 days. Had I placed my order at 2am PT it would have gone to "October" available to ship...

    The first rule of Apple launch order -- make no changes to order.

    The second rule of Apple launch order -- make no changes to order.

    The third rule of Apple launch order -- make no changes to order.

    What is more sad is paying the extra for expedited shipping will get you phone no faster. I ordered two with one having faster shipping and they will both arrive today

    I would leave your order alone.

    No. I called and changed my shipping address and they upgraded to expedited shipping. Still was in 1-3 day window and it is arriving a day earlier than originally stated.

    At least for me, upgrading shipping caused no delays. But it did not speed things up either.

    The first rule is surely don't ever add anything to the order except the device. Sometimes the shipment can be held up because of waiting on a case or other accessory. Also, it takes longer to place the order when you are racing with a zillion other people to get the first available slot.

    I made a change to launch order. I removed AppleCare+ and I changed the shipping address. Still shipped on time.

    Oh and this order had two iPhones 5s's of different colors in it. I needed them to ship to different people.
