When Apple put the iPhone 5 up for pre-order last Friday, the device had a shipping date of the 21st of September, this quickly changed to 2 weeks, and then changed to 2 to 3 weeks.
It looks like the shipping estimates have now changed again for anyone who is pre-ordering an iPhone 5 at the moment to 3 to 4 weeks, which shows that there is high demand for Apple’s new iPhone 5.
Apple recently announced that they had sold more than two million iPhone 5’s in the first 24 hours after the device went up for pre-order, and some analysts have speculated that Apple may end up selling more than 8 million iPhone 5’s in their first weekend.
If you want an iPhone 5 this Friday, and haven’t already managed to pre-order one then you will have to go to an Apple Store or one of the various mobile carrier stores.
Demand is expected to be high for the iPhone 5 this Friday, and we wonder if Apple will sell out of their latest iPhone in their retails stores when the device launches.
