One AppleInsider reader received a note from Apple letting them know that their iPhone 5 will arrive sooner than expected. When the order was originally placed Friday morning, this person was quoted an arrival date of two weeks.
The email reads:
"We have some good news concerning your recent iPhone 5 purchase," the e-mail from the Apple Store reads. We expect it to be delivered to you on the first day of iPhone 5 availability -- Friday, September 21. The delivery date we previously sent you was not accurate."
Within about an hour of pre-orders going live, the iPhone 5 had a shipping estimate of 2 weeks. Apple says they were "blown away" by the demand for the device.
