iPhone 13 Pro shipping dates slip into October, some iPhone 13 models still available on launch day
Apple kicked off pre-orders for the new iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max on Friday ahead of deliveries and in-store pickups beginning next week on September 24.
Following wide-spread issues with the pre-ordering system, which hindered customers paying with Apple Pay, Apple Card or reserving their new iPhone through the iPhone Upgrade Program, Apple’s launch day stock of the new iPhone models is beginning to go, with shipping dates slipping into October for some devices.
At the time of writing, a stock check of the online Apple Store in the United States shows the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max in all colors and storage configurations have sold out for launch day delivery, with the shipping estimate showing deliveries beginning in 3-4 weeks time.
Apple’s 1TB iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max were the first to see their shipping estimates slip, followed by the rest of the models in the Pro series.
For the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, some models still remain available for launch day delivery on September 24 including the Pink and Red iPhone 13 mini in all three storage options, and the iPhone 13 most colors and storage configurations remain on sale for day-one delivery, with the exception for the 128GB Midnight iPhone 13.
Apple unveiled the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro at its “California streaming” keynote on Tuesday, also seeing the launch of the Apple Watch Series 7, an all-new iPad mini and updated entry-level iPad.
