    Ordered 2 minutes past midnight White LTE. Delivery date is now listed as Nov 23 if you go into orders on your account. Anyone else?

    Same for me, unfortuntaly as others have mentioned in the various pre-order threads, that's Black Friday in the US and UPS and Fedex take a long weekend starting on Thanksgiving. Unless these are delivered early on 11/21 don't expect them until 11/26.

    This seems about right. Apple did say wifi will Ship Nov 2, and LTE will ship a couple of weeks after.

    My black 4th gen LTE says Delivers Nov 26. I'll have to keep an eye on that and might cancel to p/u locally. Either they are selling well or they are slow to ramp up, because in my book Nov 26 isn't anywhere near mid Nov.

    BTW was there an expedited shipping option? I didn't see one.

    I bet any orders around Black Friday is going to be pushed back even more by the mail system.

    November 26 delivery

    My order for a 16gb black ATT is also showing a delivery on Nov 26th.

    The order screen said "Available to ship mid November". And would arrive 5 days after shipped.

    So shipping on 11/21 would be a very late mid November in my opinion.

    I also think the Thanksgiving holiday has been factored in to arrive at the 11/26 date.

    I think there is still hope that it gets here before holidays. A lot of the iph 5 orders got pushed up. But obviously just speculating

    I think apple just puts "safe dates" for delivery but I've had stuff ship from them early.

    True, but in my experience that is when it says "Delivery by." My order status is definitive "Delivers on." We'll see though. If mine show processing activity by the 11th I'm going to cancel and p/u in-store. I don't think demand is going to be that overwhelming or supply that limited.

    It's not just the white. I ordered a black 64GB Verizon by 12:03 and it shows delivery by 11/23. I suspect the 11/16 date was a ship by date and it's 11/23 because 11/22 is Thanksgiving.

    Mine also says 11/23. My order was confirmed 2 minutes after the store went back up. This is, by most accounts, more than "a couple" weeks (it's 3 weeks). All we can do is hope that it's a conservative number and that we'll get it a couple days earlier. That wouldn't be completely unheard of.

    Man, I thought two weeks meant two weeks. Maybe it will arrive a little earlier than the 23rd.

    I got my conformation email from Apple at 12:03 PST and ordered one white LTE and one black LTE both AT&T and ship dates are both Nov 26th. Talk to an Apple rep this morning and they are being told this is an est. date if they are ready early they will ship as they come in by the number your order is. Told me to keep checking back.

    thanks, looks like it maybe sooner. They maybe factoring some production issues so maybe worst case. Anyone know if this is brazil or china? Either way it's foxconn but just curious

    Here's something interesting: why would Apple say a delivery date of the 23rd when ups observes it as a holiday.

    Mine changed to mid November also. I talked to our FedEx driver at work and he said they definitely do work black Friday.

    Yeah, but Apple's corporate office is closed the entire week of Thanksgiving, Tim Cook gave them the full week off. If they don't ship by the 16th, I'd say they won't ship until the 26th. They're not going to release a product a week that the corporate office is closed. The 16th is also two weeks out.

    But who knows.

    I ordered four minutes before midnight from the Apple store app before it was available on the apple website. My ship date has changed from the 23rd to mid-november also. Is that good or bad news?
