iPhone 5 Orders Shipping in Two to Three Weeks

2012 11 12 12 21 27

Still waiting for your iPhone 5? Supply and demand are slowly catching up with each other which as pushed the ship time on the Apple Store down to 2-3 weeks.

As reported by 9to5Mac today the efforts by Foxconn and Apple to build this phone, which Foxconn says is extremely hard to build, are paying off. Shipping times are dropping, of course there is still a backlog of people waiting for the phones they ordered.

Again, this makes me wonder if we’re at one of those manufacturing flex points where we have trouble making the new things we want with the old ways of doing it. It happens over and over until some genius figures out how to fix the problems manufactures are having.

The question then is—How long will that take?
