iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Sold Out in an Hour
If you didn’t stay up until midnight (or 3AM for those on the east coast) and pre-order right away, you already missed the opportunity to get an iPhone 5 shipped to you on launch day through Apple. In an impressive display of demand, the iPhone 5 pre-orders sold out in an hour, and by 1AM PST the shipping window was moved back 2 weeks on every model color, size, and provider.
For those who decided a full nights sleep was worth more than getting the iPhone 5 as soon as possible, you may still be able to get the hottest phone directly through the carrier websites listed below:
- AT&T iPhone pre-order page
- Verizon iPhone pre-order page – delivery date of September 26
- Sprint pre-order
Though some of the carrier websites still list September 21 as the ship date, it’s quite possible they haven’t updated yet and your device could arrive later than expected.
Of course, you can always still wait in line at an Apple Store or mobile provider on the morning of September 21 and get your hands on one right away too.
