It looks like the iPhone 5’s popularity is rising to whole new heights. The over whelming demand for the new iPhone has forced Apple to push back its pre-order delivery estimates from two to three weeks to three to four weeks. This means that you might have to wait for a month before you get your hands on the new iPhone.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning to get your hands on a black, white, 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB version of the iPhone 5. If it’s only now you’ve decided to pre-order the new handset, you may have to wait for a month before the phone gets delivered to your doorstep. This is potentially a month after the phone officially arrives on the 21st of the month.
If you’re not willing to wait this long, you can always head towards the nearest Apple store on Friday. The doors will open at 8am, but beware. A crowd of Apple enthusiasts have already camped outside Apple stores, hoping to be one of the first to get their hands on the new iPhone. So if you’re planning to brave the mile-long queue, be ready to spend the entire day waiting for your turn.
The iPhone 5 may not come with massive 4-inch displays or monster quad-core processor just like the competition has to offer. However, it is the most refined iPhone compared to past models. Apple even claims that the iPhone 5 is “the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone”. It looks like there are millions who agree.
