International iPhone 4S Pre-Orders Slip to 1-2 Weeks Shipping



Haven’t gotten around to pre-ordering your iPhone 4S yet? Well if you’re in Australia, Canada, France, Germany or the U.K., then you’re no longer going to get it on launch day.

New pre-orders for these territories will now face a 1-2 week shipping delay (after the October 14 release date) when ordered through the Apple online store. Orders for the U.S., however, continue to for October 14 for the time being.

The fifth-generation was scheduled for pre-order at around 12:01 AM Pacific Time today, however, problems with Apple’s online store meant that customers could not make their order until about 40 minutes later.

Even after that, many customers struggled to make orders smoothly, and many received reservation confirmations which require them to continue their order before 5 PM PST.

Were you lucky enough to get your order in before shipping times slipped?
