Whenever Apple launch a new iPhone the device always proves a huge success with consumers. This is due to the fact that the phones boasts the latest technology and also offer the modern styling that Apple have become so famous for. The new iPhone 5 however has surpassed all expectations since it officially became available to pre order on September 14th. Such was the demand on this date that many consumers were left disappointed by large delays in the shipment dates of their new phone.
If you were lucky enough to place your iPhone 5 order within one hours of orders beginning then you can expect to see your new phone arrive on September 21st, the official day of release. Millions of customers however were not so lucky and face shipping delays of between 2 to 3 weeks for the phone, meaning that they would not see the new handset until at least October. This initial disappointment has be eased some what for a lucky few who have since received e mails from Apple stating that they would in fact get their phone on launch date. It looks as though Apple had miscalculated how many devices they had actually sold and actually had devices unsold when they thought they were sold out. This is why a lucky few now face the prospect of a shiny new iPhone arriving as early as next week. There are still however millions who will have to be wait a little while longer.
Even Apple themselves could not have predicted the demand that the new iPhone 5 would receive. Many consumers are initially drawn to the phone by the sleek new metallic design and slim profile which measures just 7.6mm. Apple have not changed the chassis of the iPhone since 2010 so it seems that consumers are keener than ever to get their hands on the latest design. Another reason why demand is so high is down to the fact that a 4 inch screen is featured on the phone. This larger size will not only appeal to hardened Apple fan but also attract a new breed of customer to the iPhone who may have previously considered a larger screened phone on the Android or Windows operating system.
The e mail confirming a revised shipment date will have delighted thousands of consumers waiting for their new iPhone 5 but many more will have to wait a little longer before they can enjoy everything that this special device has to offer.
