Pope's visit might delay Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus shipments in the Northeast
Those in New York and Philadelphia expecting to find a box containing the brand new Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus at their door on September 25th, might be a little upset to learn that the possibility exists that their phone won't arrive until Monday, September 28th. The reason for the delay is the U.S. visit by Pope Francis.

The Pope is visiting New York and Philadelphia next week, and UPS is halting deliveries in certain regions of the two cities. The delivery halt runs from Thursday, September 24th through Saturday, September 26th. Since the next day is a Sunday, package deliveries won't take place in the affected areas until Monday, September 28th. UPS is implementing this plan as a security precaution.

Zip Codes affected by the delivery halt in New York City are 10001, 10007, 10017, 10021, 10022, 10023, and 10029. In Philadelphia, affected Zip Codes are 19102, 19103, 19104, 19106, 19107, 19109, 19123, 19130, 19146, and 19147.

Apple employs both FedEx and UPS for its shipments. So far, FedEx has not issued any delivery halt. If your iPhone is being shipped via UPS, and you are in one of the above listed Zip Codes, you might be able to personally pick up your package at a UPS holding center. Call your local UPS office to see if that is possible.

Apple and the catholic corporation are both equally evil businesses. I've glad Jobs is where he deserves to be now.

Apple have just been doing it for decades. The popes and the dalai lamas of the old generations have been fooling us for hundreds of years. Clearly, NY authorities can't decide if citizens are more important than francis.

Not sure where the dalai lamas come in though. They never strike me as fooling people. And who is this Francis? ;)

Well if steve jobs visit, at least we all know he's honest that he's after people's money and they'll just do the apple worshipping on a rented turf. I don't like this kind of news, convenience and comfort of the public will be disrupted just because of a single religiois leader. Catholic fanboyism sure is more damaging to the many.

They probably would since he is dead, if he resurrected that would be a huge freakin' deal, the top story across the world.

iphone is up there with the Pope,now? They are going to make the ioiphonehine lovers made by delaying their true God, the "iphone.".

Yes it was. ..... If anyone pokes fun and speaks of the truth, about Apple, you really get offended.

It wasn't, but that's only my opinion. Anyways, I'm having trouble deciphering whether "ioiphonehine" is supposed to be a portmanteau of something else (along the lines of "iSheep" or "iPhonearena... hilarious...), or if it is just a horribly-wrong spelling of "iPhone."
