    Hours later and there are still some configurations available for launch day delivery. Carriers have them for launch day delivery as well. Looks like the most lackluster iPhone launch ever. Even iPhone 8 was selling better. What was all the fuss about? Raised my BP for no reason.

    On the Apple site it shows 5-6 weeks. Not launch date. For every single carrier and config.

    They have them weeks out. I didn't get a delivery date until 11/10 and that was after ordering when finally Verizon app store worked for me at 3:18. I'm getting silver 256 GB.

    Man. If only I could have a company that could flop as hard as Apple. I’d be swimming in money like Scrooge mcduck

    Doesn't seem like flop to me, waking up this morning, I see the dates are at the 5-6 week range - seems like they've sold out pretty quickly.

    Where are you seeing this? All models said 2-3 weeks by 3:15 and they now say 5-6 weeks.

    Lol, this post wins the internet for the day. We can close the forum down now for the weekend I reckon.

    Honestly, people find ways to spin every single thing that happens in the Apple world to suit their agenda.

    I could get a silver 64 model on Verizon for launch day delivery about half hour ago

    On Apple, all seem to have slipped. But about an hour or two ago, there were still some available

    This is what Verizon shows me (6:36 AM ET):

    12/01 - 64 GB Space Gray
    11/15 - 64 GB Silver
    12/06 - 256 GB Space Gray
    12/01 - 256 GB Silver

    AT&T:

    "Ships between 11/02-11/10" - 64 GB Space Gray
    11/03 - 64 GB Silver
    "Ships between 12/01-12/15" - 256 GB Space Gray
    "Ships between 11/02-11/10" - 256 GB Silver

    Pre orders opened at 8.01am for us here in the UK.
    I managed to get in at 8.04am - 256gb black - ship date 13-20 Nov (slipped 2-3 weeks)
    then five mins later wife wanted one, 64gb white - ship date 24 Nov (Slipped 3-4 weeks)

    checked an hour later once I got into work (late obviously) and its 5-6 weeks

    Not sure why you think its a flop lol

    Regardless, we don't know production numbers were for Apple and how many units they actually had available. But even a 5 to 6 week ship time, doesn't reflect negatively. Not to mention, there are plenty who did not pre-order and will continue to do so throughout the day and through the weekend.

    I personally think the amount of stock is far higher than people expected

    Everything is sitting at 5 - 6 weeks on Apple's site. That's pushing toward Christmas.

    Might be tough to get one at all in 2017 if someone doesn't get their order in sometime soon.

    The Christmas shopping season is going to crush supply even more.
