iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Now Showing 3-4 Weeks Shipping Estimate Online

AT&T, Verizon and Sprint are now showing 3-4 weeks shipping estimates for the iPhone 5.

It’s been less than a week since the iPhone 5 was made available for pre-order, and shipping estimates from the Apple Store have now slipped to 3-4 weeks. It took a couple hours for shipping estimates to slip to 1-2 weeks last Friday morning, and then they slipped even father to 2-3 weeks shortly after.

Considering the fact that the iPhone 5 sold 2 million pre-orders in 24 hours, it looks like demand for Apple’s newest handset won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

At this point, your best bet for getting your hands on the iPhone 5 before October is waiting in line Friday morning.
