The iPhone 5 went on pre-order earlier this morning and if you are looking to grab one direct from Apple, it is already too late. The shipping date for every model of the iPhone 5 be it Black or White, 16GB, 32GB or 64GB is now showing as two weeks in the United States. Previously if you pre-ordered the iPhone 5 delivery was guaranteed for Friday September 21.
It appears to be a very similar story around Europe too, the UK is now showing shipping dates as 2-3 weeks for the Black 32GB and 64GB models and two weeks for every other model. The sellout appears to have started just an hour after the iPhone 5 went on sale this morning. Carriers like AT&T, Sprint and Verizon do have some pre-order stock still available although we expect that to be gone pretty soon too.
