    I just noticed today morning that my iPhone 5s shipment for bay area was in Korea. Normally, Apple shipment comes directly from China to UPS center in US. I dont know whats going on, but I hope that the iPhone arrives on time or a day early:D.

    Actually going to North Korea where Kim Jong-un will have his people open every single box to find the singular iPhone 5S with no dings or dents or scratches or marks... because he can. :cool:

    Incheon is a main airport hub in S. Korea serving Asia as a stopover for flights or to pick up additional cargo in transit to U.S.

    This. ^ We tracked them there in Sept 2012. By the time you get it, it's well-traveled. Relax. :)

    Don't get to excited. Once it arrives in Alaska it has to clear customs which could take days.

    Samsung probably changed the route so they can copy the Touch ID sensor.

    Apple doesn't have the same customs processes as generic imports. Customs isn't checking all the identical iPhone boxes.
