Next Wave of iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Have Shipped from Apple

For those that ordered an unlocked iPhone 5 from the Apple Online store last week but didn’t make the first pre-order (they sold out in an hour and quickly moved to a 2 week estimated delivery date), it looks like the next batch of orders have started to ship with shorter than expected wait times. readers have emailed to say their iPhone 5 pre-orders have shipped, with UPS tracking numbers already in place. One order was set to arrive by October 9th after pre-ordering on September 14th, but as of today the iPhone 5 is set to arrive by September 27th.

Apple typically over estimates their package delivery times. We were told by UPS our package was set to arrive on September 24th, but it arrived on launch day by noon. Has your ‘late’ iPhone 5 pre-order shipped yet?

Thanks Irving and Jay!
