    Default US Delivery time now 2 weeks

    Just managed to get into the US Apple Store using incognito mode in Chrome and saw that the delivery time is 2 weeks now. That was when I selected the Black 32GB but I think it said 2 weeks for all capacities

    Yep... the page where you choose your color, size and network shows 2 weeks for all options/choices... at least in the US.

    From what I'm reading, all orders are now on the 2 week time frame, the launch day pre-orders are sold out.

    said 2 weeks as well for me here in Toronto. I was reading here on the forums that past pre ordered arrived on release date for the most part. Has anyone pre ordered before where it said 2 weeks but arrived on release date?

    Last year when the 4S began listing "2 weeks" as the shipping time, that meant the allotted pre-order amount had been sold and you were on the next batch...is it possible? Sure, there was probably a very tiny % of people who ordered late last year that still got it on the release day. Unfortunately though, as it sits, those with a 2 week shipping time estimate are probably going to get it with the second batch of phones to be shipped.

    Hard to believe they went through the first batch so quickly. I'd love to find out how many is in a batch. I thought ordering at 6am est would have been good enough to get in on the "first batch"

    Why is it hard to believe? It happens every year like that...literally selling through the first batch in a matter of hours. 6am is pushing as a sort of "last second" pre-order, I think last year there were SOME people who trickled in at 6-7am on pre-order day that still got it for release day batches, but yeah, it's looking like this iPhone (like all the ones before) flew off the shelf and sold out rather quickly.

    I think that Verizon is still on for a 9/21 delivery because most people who bought the 4 on Verizon are not yet able to upgrade (beginning of October is their earliest upgrade date), those who bought the 4S can't upgrade yet, and I don't see a lot of new customers flocking to Verizon over this phone. All this means that Verizon will probably be selling quite a bit at full retail, like I bought it for, and they will probably be the best bet to still get a phone on launch day even if ordering later in the morning. Just my thoughts.

    Do your research man, even as a first time pre-orderer...you had to know the kind of speed these phones sell out, as it's happened every year for the last 5 years.

    Just placed my order on Apple.com and got the "2 week" shipping estimate too. So is it a 2 week estimate from the date you placed the order, or from 09/21 (the release date)? Also I choose standard shipping, which it said could take up to 5 days on top of that. Does that mean I wouldn't see the new phone at my door until maybe October 5'th? :o

    I saw that Apple was showing the 2 week shipping time, so I hopped over to Sprint, and it was showing delivery for Sept 21.....so I went ahead and ordered through Sprint (hopefully that'll work!!)....once I was into the order for Sprint, it said they would do their best to have it delivered on Sept 21 (so I guess that kind of leaves it open that it could still be later)....guess I'll just have to wait and see!

    You should be fine. I ordered from the carrier instead of apple in the past and it works.

    Each store has an allotment of phones for sale. Apple probably has the most available, but they also are supplying each carrier. Since Sprint was having web issues, it's reasonable to assume that they didn't sell their allotment as quickly as Apple. AT&T and VZW, I'm sure, had a smaller batch to sell, but were dealing with just their customers, so they reached their "sellout" later (or earlier). There's a whole set of dynamics in play here... but the bottom like is that despite all the critics, there is a very strong demand.

    I pre-ordered 2 from VZW and both are scheduled for the 9/21 delivery however I also received a strange text message from vzw asking to confirm the order. Did anyone else receive this?

    oh god, i hope not. regardless of the 2 week message I will still be hoping to see it next week. maybe apple is just covering their a$$ just in case they arent able to ship

    If you ordered through Apple, check your status in the apple store app. Mine now says delivery expected on Oct 5.

    Given the shipment scaling, if you ordered 2 hours after me, you might get yours some time in 2014.

    I kid.

    But seriously I'll probably just walk into one of the stores selling the iPhone in my city on the 21st and get one then.

    i was thinking the same, but "just walking in" might not be so easy. Ive seen some mamoth line ups in my area. what will you do with the iphone you receive by shipment? are you able to send it back for a full refund or could you return it at an apple store?
