iPhone 5s Now Shipping Within 2 to 3 Weeks

Apple has clarified the shipping times for its iPhone 5s, with new shipping estimates ranging from two to three weeks for all carriers, colors, and capacities in the United States, Canada, and Asia Pacific. Apple Stores in Europe continue to list Apple's previous "October" shipping timeline.

Taking into account delivery times, iPhones ordered today will arrive to customers in late October or early November.

The updated shipping time comes as Apple prepares to launch the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c to 35 new countries on October 25 and an additional 16 countries on November 1.

Though Apple's shipping times seem to have improved somewhat, a new study conducted by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster reveals that in-store iPhone 5s availability has been slipping over the past two weeks. As a result, it is more difficult to reserve an iPhone for pickup, or walk into a store to purchase one, while previously, some models, such as Space Gray, were readily available.

Apple's iPhone 5s has been available in limited quantities since launch, selling out within a matter of hours after Apple began taking online orders. Gold and silver models in particular have been hard to come by, with supplies of the gold model in particular drying up within 30 minutes of the phone’s launch. The iPhone 5c remains in stock, with new orders shipping out within 24 hours.

You can yawn at the sales figures as well. Only problem is they'll be shattering all analysts expectations...

Also Forstall is never coming back. Get over it.

how expensive iPhones are, now that inexpensive iPhones are available, very few whiners will buy.


"inexpensive" ?? The 5c ???? WTF ?????????????

It's just a 100€ of from the f####ing 699/700€ they want for the same storage sized 5s, just a slight rebate for buying last years phone in a plastic shell.

Now offcourse if you one of those signing up a 50++€/$ per month contract and actually believing your only paying 99$ for the phone.... well lets just say that joke is on you :eek:

They may have replaced 5C production with 5S production.

It's kind of annoying that I ordered on 9/22 and my estimated shipping date is no better than if I just ordered today. What happened to those three weeks?

And I think you have offered the same whiny response to all of them.


I had the hope that irrational human behaviour could be corrected, but you have proven me wrong. Nevertheless, I won't reply, so you won't be just a troll, but an ignored troll.
