Some iPhone 5 Preorders Could Arrive Next Month

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Demand is through the roof for Apple’s recently debuted iPhone 5, so much so that some preorders could arrive later than some would like. According to a report from Sky News on Monday, the Cupertino, California-based company has indicated some of the phones wouldn’t arrive until next month.

“Demand for iPhone 5 exceeds the initial supply and while the majority of pre-orders will be delivered to customers on September 21, many are scheduled to be delivered in October,” read an Apple statement, according to the news story.

Meanwhile, a report from USA Today signaled that pre-orders for the device had reached 2 million in just one day’s time. That’s a relatively large improvement compared to pre-orders for the 5’s predecessor, the iPhone 4S.

Apple unveiled the device in San Francisco last Wednesday. The iPhone 5 includes improved features such as a larger display, thinner body, 4G LTE and a smaller chip.
