Apple’s iPhone 5 went up for pre-order last Friday the 14th of September, and will go on sale this Friday the 21st of September, and now it would appear that some of the first iPhone 5 orders have started shipping.
According to the guys over at MacRumors, a number of their readers have started shipping from China, although this does not mean they will get their iPhone 5 before Friday, as Apple usually makes the delivery companies hold them until release day.
The iPhone 5 is expected to be Apple’s most popular smartphone to date, it comes with a new larger 4 inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, a new smaller lightning dock connector, plus a new aluminum and glass case, as well as a slimmer design.
Pre-orders of the iPhone 5 sold out last Friday in around one hour, and Apple’s website is now showing shipping times of two to three weeks, so if you want an iPhone 5 on launch day then your best bet would be an Apple retail store.
