    Anything is possible if you believe. Here is an interesting link from AppleInsider:

    i'm sure they prematurely up the dates just to prevent people thinking they would get it on launch day only to have their dreams crushed by an email stating that they have to wait longer.

    SO maybe you got into that buffer zone where you will be upgraded to the 21st but probably not... next year order sooner ^__^

    Generally, they are pretty accurate, but they are typically "worst case"... so getting your goodies earlier is always a possibility (though not guaranteed).

    Under promise, over deliver.... set a 'realistic' expectation, and beat it. Keeps people happier.

    I would think very. Last year my 4s was delivered on the exact date promised on website- launch date even though it said processing for almost a week. This year, I ordered much sooner- within an hour and got same message as you. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ“ฑ

    More importantly, there was a wall street journal article discussing the whole thing. See the following article which I couldn't copy the link. I have a link in another post in this thread.


    Apple iPhone 5 Preorders Suggest Strong Demand - WSJ.com

    At least whatever hiccups are in the software and hardware may be corrected by the time our shipments arrive plus maybe there will be cases, cords, etc.

    Usually it's a worst case estimate. Last year when people were getting delivery estimates of 2-3 weeks ending up getting the device before then. I think it's just apple covering themselves. Gotta think the production lines are running all day now to get 21st orders as well as the others. So don't be surprised to see a little sooner than you though.
