Apple alerting some iPhone 6s pre-order customers to delivery delays ahead of papal visit

Deliveries may be delayed For some iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-order customers, according to Apple. Specifically, traffic restrictions in New York brought on by Pope Francis' visit to the United States will put a damper on deliveries to buyers in certain U.S. zip codes, and Apple has begun notifying buyers of the delay. Here's a portion of the email sent out by Apple, as posted by Sam Biddle on Twitter:

While Apple doesn't mention the Pope's visit in its email to customers, UPS has issued a service update noting that deliveries to certain areas of Washington, D.C., New York City, and Philadelphia will be impacted by security measures put in place for Pope Francis' visit between September 22-27. As Apple notes in its email, however, Saturday deliveries are scheduled, so most of those impacted should have their deliveries in hand a day later.
