Official Iphone 5s order status thread

Ordered mine around 7 am this morn, I hadnt even a clue I was eligible for an upgrade until I went in to pay my bill this morning.  Decided it was time to graduate to a 32gb over my 16gb.  I am always running out of space so it made the most sense.  I believe I cna sell my 5 for 250-300$ so its a wash regardless.  Early email said 7-14 days but its not confirmed yet and Ive read alot of folks saying they got an email saying it could be a month.  We will see I guess, no hurry here!

I have a feeling these dates will change quite a bit as they figure out their stock statuses.  Possibly numeorus times a day,  Mine also says preparing to ship as well, and has also changed from 10-21 - 10-31 to 10-1 - 10-10, thats a good thing because I can sell my iphone 5 to gazelle now!

I have the same status and I ordered mine at 2:00 AM. However it also says ship dates between 10/1-10/30? I should have went through Apple as well.

Well....I ordered myself a Iphone 5 S 64 Gold right out of the box a 12:05am Calif time and was given a 10-1 to 10-31 shipping date. I felt that 4 to 6 weeks timeframe is nuts!

 

I called in and cancelled my order...

 

now my contract date is still out of wack can I expect it will get corrected once a program is run???

Ordered the space grey iphone 5s 16GB right at 3 am eastern.  Status says preparing for shipment, but ship date says 10/1-10/31.  Hoping the system is being overly conservative with its dates.   I will not be happy if I have to wait until mid-late October.  Should have ordered from the Apple store.

I ordered a 16 GB gray one at 6 AM EST. I received a text saying that it was processed and send to the warehouse for shipping. I later received an e-mail with a delivery estimate from Oct. 1 - Oct. 31.

Now that most of us have seen our order status update to 10-1 to 10-10, it makes sense because 7 business days would be 10-1 and 14 business days would be 10-10, so I am fully expecting mine to come in that time period, makes sense from what the orginal email said to us!

I ordered 1 gold 16gb and one slate 16gb. I had a really hard time ordering them as I kept getting that they couldn't find my account. I started trying to order around 3:00am (eastern) and finally ordered through the my AT&T app around 4. I have no idea why it was being so fussy but I was getting really annoyed. Ship date first showed 10/1-10/10 and its now changes to 10/1-10/30 so mine has gone opposite. These ones were ordered for my parents, and off a business account. I was really anointed to miss the 1-3 days for these off the apple site.

I also ordered a 16gb silver off the apple site on a different account. This one went through just fine and my order is still processing on their site with a 1-3 day ship date. I haven't found anyone yet on the apple site that had switched to preparing up ship or shipped yet.

So basically they just dont have these things in stock otherwise if they were in stock I can't see it taking 2-4 weeks to ship an item. Beyond me how this stuff can happen when they know how these phone releases go.

One thing to keep in mind they have to divide the stock to supply all the carriers,Apple Stores,and retail chains they have contracts with and now that problem multiplies with the new countries they added to the list.

I am sure they would love to sell everyone a phone that walks in or orders on line ASAP but the reality is they can only supply so many each week and complicating things now is color choice.

blame Apple, they are the ones that shorted 5S stock to all carriers, including those outside of the US, stopped in a att store this evening that is run by a friend of mine to see how it was going and to take her out for dinner, they sold out of the 5S's quickly, but they still have a number of the 5C's left and those have been on sale doe two days. It does not matter in the least that the carriers know, the supply is controlled by Apple and Apple alone, don;t blame att, verizon, sprint or t-mobile for the lack of devices - write a nasty note to apple since they are responsible. the international trade papers are saying the the gold iphone (sold out first) will not be available until late october or early november.

 

One news report showed a video of a person walking out of Apples store in Covent Gardens with 4 phones, then putting up a sign stating that he would sell the iphones for 2000 Euro each, there are iphone 5s on ebay running from 899.00 for a 16GB to over 2000.00 US dollars

would be unusual to see any shipped today since it normally takes at least 1 business day to process, pack and load on to the truck, although those that got their order in right after12:01 AM PT might

I had gotten up and ordered an Iphone 5s at midnight PAC time and was given a shipment date of 10-1 to 10 - 31. I cancelled my order as they are selling something they just dont have in stock.

 

Very Sad. I was a early order....  Smiley Sad

I ordered right at 3 am eastern time and my shipping estimate says 10/1-10/31.  However, my order status currently says preparing for shipment which makes me think the system is simply being overly conservative with the dates it gives.  Or, perhaps I am simply being overly optimistic.  I guess I'll find out.

I got a ship date of 10/21 - 10/30 for the silver and grey option! That is way later than what they are stating on thier website when ordering. Its very deceptive in my opinion.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Ok so the grey 64 gb updated to 10/1-10/10 but the silver 64 gb is still showing 10/21-10/31

One thing - that is only 6 business days, suspect like last year are estimated are based on business days not calendar days. For exa,ple you can order a product from a place like new egg on a thursday, it can actually hit the local fedex distribution site on friday night, but it will not be staged for deliever until monday. Unless priority shipping or weekend delivery is available when ordered nothing happens on weekends and holidays

Ordered at 3:40AM, got this confirmation:
We currently estimate that your order for Apple iPhone 5s (16GB Gold) will ship within 7 - 28 days business days.

Than at 9am I got this:
Expected Shipment Date for devices only* 10/21/2013 to 10/30/2013

Now it says:
Order status: Preparing to Ship
Estimated shipping date:10/01/2013 - 10/30/2013

Go figure!!!!

My orders:

16gb white silver- ordered apple.com 3:10am *processing*

16gb white gold - ordered from att app (I was having issues ordering from my dads business account, took me a hour and 1/2 to order them): 4:22am-preparing for shipment

16gb black/silver- att (same as above) 4:18am- preparing for shipment

I'm in eastern time zone.

I don't mind waiting, I just kinda want to know how long I will be waiting. I'm hoping to list all our current phones (4,4s and 4s) on eBay before the bills come in.

I ordered just before midnight PDT, 32gb Silver. First said Oct 21-Oct 30, then Oct 1 - Oct 10. Now just got email that order has shipped and will arrive Monday 9/23. I have FedEx tracking number also now.

Very quick, so hopefully others will start to get theirs. Beat waiting in line.
