Complete List Of iPhone 5s Shipping Times From The Online Apple Store And U.S. Carriers [Chart]

iPhoneshippingtimes

Getting a gold iPhone 5s has become nearly impossible the last few days – unless you’re willing to shell out some cash on eBay. As demand has ramped up to a fever pitch, online shipping estimates have slipped deep into October. To keep track of all the changing shipping estimates Walter Piecyk at BTIG shared the following chart on Twitter this afternoon.

All carriers and the Online Apple Store are now estimating that new iPhone 5s orders won’t ship until October regardless of color, so if you’re wanting an iPhone 5s before the holidays you better jump on it. Keep in mind that even though the online shipping estimates appear dire, if you want to get an iPhone 5s sooner you can still check for stock at your local Apple Store which should be receiving new iPhone 5s shipments nearly every day.

    What about T-Mobile? I ordered a 32gb gold 5s, and while yes, it’s currently on backorder, I’d like to have a glimmer of hope to know when I might expect my phone, hopefully before Thanksgiving.

    I believe thats the Apple Store category / unlocked that says October.

    Poor Sprint. Glad I left them this past Sunday for Verizon.

    I was hoping for something a little less vague, but as long as the October estimate is correct, I’m fine with that, as the other carriers are looking worse off.
