New iPhones reportedly arriving in U.S. ahead of announcement

September 20th, which means the shipments are coming in over two weeks ahead of that launch. That may not be too strange in general, but when you take into account that Apple's CEO Tim Cook has his background in supply chain, and prides himself on cutting down how much stock is on hand at any time.This is a bit odd for a couple of reasons. First, the general consensus is that the new iPhones will not be made available for purchase until
According to a supposedly reliable source for MacRumors, Apple shipped as many as 1.2 million units of the iPhone 5C to the U.S. yesterday. There has been no word about any iPhone 5S shipments yet. Maybe this means the 5C will launch before the 5S? We'll find out next week.

Nice!!!!! Talk about quality......you can get a Nexus 4 build with quality materials for $200. But Apple will price this so called "cheap" iPhone at like $400. Way to Go

I rather have a device with a more stable OS that actually just works.

Wow you all bashing apple but have no words about the entire cheap galaxy line with tons of battery recalls, screens that overheat and don't forget the flimsy battery covers. Lol

I have words... Battery recall? you mean the galaxy s2 from 2011? not sure of any other galaxy with " tons" of recalls Screens that overheat? doesn't even make sense. do you mean that the device is working hard and generating heat and you feel it in the screen? makes sense, considering the screen helps to wick heat away from the processor. quad core, cutting edge processors with cutting edge operating systems tend to work and play pretty hard, what's the issue? flimsy battery covers...jeez. they wear out our get scratched? your carrier's repair store probably has 5-10 spare battery doors laying around. I'd say its a different story with an iPhone, considering they SHATTER and cost far more than a nickel to replace
