iPhone 5 pre-orders now ship in 3-4 weeks

iPhone 5
If there is one thing that every single customer hates, that would be waiting. Unfortunately, that is what some future iPhone 5 owners will have to brace themselves for as the smartphone is now estimated to ship in 3 to 4 weeks if pre-ordered from the Apple store online. In comparison, the iPhone 5 projected shipping date stood at "only" 1 to 2 weeks until just recently.

The considerable delay doesn't surprise us much given the overwhelming iPhone 5 demand, which we reported about already. Only 24 hours were needed for 2 million units to be pre-ordered online, and about 8 million of them are expected to be sold by the end of the weekend. No wonder that as a result, Apple stock reached a new high of over $700 apiece. 

So if you want to have an iPhone 5, but haven't placed a pre-order yet, prepare yourself for a lengthy wait. Sure, you can also try queuing up in front of a local Apple store, although there is no guarantee that you'll be able to buy one before they all sell out.
