iPhone 5 Pre-Order Shipping Estimates Slip to 3-4 Weeks

It appears those ordering new Apple’s iPhone 5 pre-orders will have to wait just a bit longer. New shipping estimates note the delay now shows 3-4 weeks (as noted by MacRumors); previously this was at 2-3 weeks.

Just after the first hour of initial pre-orders last week, order ship estimates dropped to 1-2 weeks after insatiable demand for the 6th-generation iPhone. Apple divulged yesterday iPhone 5 pre-orders hit 2 million in the first 24 hours, an impressive feat considering pundits have deemed the new device ‘boring’.

So far, the first iPhone 5 pre-orders are stuck in the “preparing for shipment” phase, but we are anticipating that to change as we progress into Wednesday.
