Apple's website now shows October delivery for Apple iPhone 5s

0. phoneArena 21 Sep 2013, 14:07 posted on

We've already known that the Apple iPhone 5s has suffered from lower production yields than Apple would have wanted; friday morning at 3am EDT, Apple started selling the phone on its website with delivery times just 1 to 3 business days days. Now, those ordering any iPhone 5s model from the subsidized handsets to the SIM free units, will have to wait until October to receive their new iPhone 5s...

I ordered my gold 32gb unlocked as soon as orders opened! They start shipping on the 30th with 1-3 days shipping time :) can't wait!! I went to play around with it at my local tmobile store, the space gray is really beautiful, hope the gold doesn't disappoint

The hold is what I wanted, but I sold my phone the day before so I was iphone less. My main thing was 64 gigs though. Hope you enjoy it. +1

The gold one looks the best next to the gray one. Just your luck lol. How are you liking Touch ID?

Loving smurf, it's actually been 100% accurate. That's surprising considering the phone just hit the market. These improvements are long over due, but now that they're here, they make it way better to use.

is it everything that you wanted it to be? It looks to me that they just fixed some of the bugs with battery and wifi. The new OS is good but it's "girly", for lack of a better term. Camera is a little better in low-light, but it's not everything they made it out to be. Processor...well, most of what is in the App Store really doesn't take full advantage of the new quad-core by samsung. And why the heck didn't they make it HD. I just don't get that. Still with the letterbox. Apple still won't budge with some things i guess

Dude I just like the phone bro. I could think of a million things with every phone on the market, to end up not buying one. Great/non perfect device, fits my needs/wants, and iOS is improved to where it will continue to be my daily driver.

i'm just saying. I'm in the industry and it seemed like nobody was really floored by it. The five was a bigger deal but not as much as the 4. We didn't even have a line this time around! More people are talking about The Note, but i was kind of disappointed with the design choice of that model too.

I wasn't floored by it. The only device that floored me was the One, and that was only looks wise. iPhone 5S, gnote3,and s4 were all nice looking yet conservative upgrades. The leather back of the note3 is hideous though. I'm good with my 5S.

I have the One. More and more people are seeing that the glue comes loose that holds the screen to the body. HTC always has hardware issues. So for it's not out of control but i've seen a lot of people have issues with it. Iphones and Samsung devices never have this problem

May be because it's plastic

The One is not plastic. And the samsung "plastic" device does hold up. What the point you were trying to make?

Dude stop hatin', it's not girly; I mean, if you consider rAiNbow fuscia iCons with the slightest hint of lavender on a gold phone girly then something is seriously wrong with you. I think men should be free to explore their iFemiNiNe side.

I tried an IOS 7 clone on a MIUI theme. It is "girly" and looks worse than the old theme. Too bad its not like android where if you don't like the theme you can actually change it.

That sucks. Try Best Buy. The one near me last night had plenty in stock.

Not surprised: just another marketing stunt by Apple to make people think that the iPhone is hotter than ever so that the people who already threw away hundreds of their grocery money for the year wouldn't feel so suckered. And, to make everyone think it's still coooool to have an iPhone.

Personally, iWould've loved to see you with the gold one; somehow, it seemed a befitting choicefor your big and Mary self.

Anyway, congrats and here's to the new iOS7.1013260043.45 to fix all the bugs - whenever they get that build finished.

I got the space grey as well. I'm loving mine so far

+1 to that. So far the browser is really blowing me away, the new design of it is sweet. And the touch ID has been 100% accurate so far. My wife had the 8x, and she's like wowwww I'm hooked lol. She got the 32 gig space gray. Go into your calculator and you'll notice that you simply swipe digits away, that you don't want. Neat feature.

After yesterday, I think I'm done responding too, or chatting with you period for awhile. That's all I have to say.

Thats cute, my Nexus 4's system default Calculator is set to a TI84 emulator that can do a million things that the stock one can't.

You know what else is cute ? The little nubs on the version 11 and up because the N4 backs would crack without warning and without rough use.

I've been watching C reviews, and it's definitely been stepped up from the OG 5. The blue one is the sweetest to me, I say go for it. +1
