Unlocked iPhone 5c Pre-Orders and Cases Have Shipped [u]


Those who made iPhone 5c pre-orders just after midnight PDT on September 13 should have received notification emails from Apple stating their case orders have shipped. Despite cases initially stating shipping times of 1-2 weeks during checkout, they have shipped simultaneously first.

Our blue iPhone 5c pre-order made via the Apple Store iOS app has shipped alongside its white case and is expected to arrive on September 20, the day of both new iPhone launches. is still processing.

As of writing, still has every single colour of the iPhone 5c pre-order stock on hand, as no shortages have loomed yet. This is an indication Apple is well prepared for its iPhone 5c launch or it could mean demand for the new polycarbonate iPhone has been lower than expected, as previous iPhone pre-orders have resulted in sellouts of initial batches.

Has your iPhone 5c pre-order and case from Apple shipped yet?

Update: we’re blind—only the case has shipped with a tracking number, the phone is still processing.

    Low demand I think as well, I’d like to see the 5s first week sales.

    I for one find these models greatly disappointing. I still have the 4 and Im not moving up to these. I get that is “S” is the second in the line up but I wasn’t wowed. We now know that the “C” means color not cheap from earlier reports. Anyone else waiting for the “6” model which should be larger, I dont want a phonblet or whatever there called but something a little larger would be nice IMO. Cheers guys

    Worst part is trying to decide if I should buy it outright for my daughter. She has my old 3G or go with the 2 year plan. It is the plans are disappointing me more than the phone. I would upgrade my 4S if there was a great plan.

    The C is a ripoff. They elimated the cost of the fancy metal case, and used year old components but only shaved $100 versus the 5 when it came out. You would be mad to but this rather than the S model with its faster everything and excellen camera.

    So I found a 64 gb iPhone 5 of kijiji with AppleCare+ for $500 and I will wait for the 6 or 6s.

  • lewdvig

    Yeah, carriers will lock you into a 65-85 dollar plan and still charge 130 for the phone.

  • Mark

    I’m with you on this one mike, I too will wait for the 6.
