iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Via Verizon Slip to September 26th Delivery, AT&T Showing 14-21 Days
Apple’s new iPhone 5 was unveiled on Wednesday at the annual music event. The iPhone 5 sporting a thinner form factor, taller 4-inch inch screen and LTE connectivity is available on all of the major carriers in the United States such as AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint as well as some regional carriers such as C-Spire.
With Apple’s shipping estimates around 2 weeks on the first day of Pre-order, it appears that the company is keeping the iPhone 5 in stock for a September 21st delivery. However, carriers such as Verizon are experiencing a longer wait time for delivery, with some customers expecting their pre-orders to arrive as late as September 26th. AT&T is also reportedly showing delivery in 14-21 days after first reporting the same September 21st delivery.
It appears that Sprint is currently the only remaining carrier to still be displaying the September 21st delivery date, however, that is bound to change if other major carriers are slipping in delivery early on. During the initial weeks of Apple’s product releases, shipping times are normally longer but within 2-3 weeks, drop to a week or less. This can be expected with the iPhone 5 as well.
