Has anyone had a gold iPhone 5s actually ship yet?

post #1 of 210
Thread Starter 

 Just wondering if anyone has had the gold model ship yet or for that matter any 5s. My order for the 64GB gold went thru 15 minutes after going on sale thru the Apple online store. My ship time was listed as 7 to 10 business days. So far it still hasn't shipped, although the shipping time is still listed at 7-10 days.

Good News! My order is now listed as preparing for shipment. So at least they seem to be shipping.

I ordered my gold iPhone 64GB from Apple on launch midnight but got the "Ships in October" time frame (was probably 15-20 minutes after midnight).  Wondering if anyone from launch night with that shipment range have started shifting to the "Preparing to ship" status yet?

 

Thanks!

For those of you with "ship in October" woes, my mom ordered a 16 GB Gold from Verizon on launch day and her ship day is November 4.  That's right, November 4.  

 

Luckily, she's patient.

Quick update - the gold iPhone order status changed today from "Processing Items" to "Preparing Shipment".  I'm hoping in theory that means it's moving through the assembly cycle now.

 

Fingers crossed.

I ordered 16GB iphone 5s from ATT on Sept 20, 2013 at 11:00am CST.  When I ordered the phone, it gave me an estimate date to ship of 10/21-10/31.  Today, I received an email stating that it is Texas and I will receive it on the 8th. I am in Mississippi by the way.

Ordered 9/20/13 at about 7:15 am PST. Status is still "Processing Item" =/

I ordered a 16GB Gold iPhone 5s from apple unlocked on release date 15 minutes after launch and got a shipping time of "October". On Friday, (October 4) the status of the order changed to "Preparing For Shipment". At the moment, on the apple website, the status is still the same. I went on the UPS website and tried to track by reference hoping my phone is actually shipped (Put the phone number associated with the order in the shipment reference section, then put your country and postal code in) and it says that my iPhone has shipped! It was departed from ZhengZhou, China today and the expected delivery is this friday! Super stoked.

Shipped! 64gb gold iPhone will arrive Oct 10th
post #10 of 210

placed an order on the apple site for the gold 32gb on sept 20th and the date I was given was October. I received an e-mail from apple on Oct 4th and this is what it says:

 

 

''Dear Zafran Shazad,

Thank you for your recent iPhone 5s order. As you may know, demand has been incredible, and we appreciate your patience.

Your iPhone 5s is scheduled to ship in October . We will email you a more specific ship date shortly.

For the most up-to-date delivery information, visit Order Status on the Apple Online Store. And if you already have an iPhone, the easiest way to check your order status, including delivery information, is to use the Apple Store app.

We look forward to getting your iPhone 5s to you as soon as possible.

I completed my order with in 5 mins and I got the phone at my door on 9/30 . I was little suprised as my order shows it will be shipped between 10/1 - 10/30 .  IPhones 16gb gold ATT.

post #12 of 210
I ordered my 32 gig gold Iphone 5s at shortly after midnight on launch day. It is on the way and scheduled to arrive this week.
post #13 of 210

Has anyone who had an estimated ship date of 11/4 seen an update on their status?

post #14 of 210

No, I signed up on 9/20 and still waiting. My status is "preparing shipment" from ATT website.

post #15 of 210

Ordered 16GB Gold AT&T on the launch day around 3:30 am PST from the Apple's app.

 

Status has not changed since then and it says:

 

Processing Items            Available to ship: October

post #16 of 210
I ordered mine on 9/20 around 6:30pm EST through Apple website for a gold 64GB 5S. No change in status. I'm hoping it will ship by the end of the week.
post #17 of 210

My ship date moved from mid October to Nov 1-Nov 21... :/ I'm not that patient, but went with the AT&T Next plan to get out of my contract and I update my phone every time a new iPhone comes out (I've had every model since 2008) so the part about getting a new phone every year made sense. I guess I don't have any other choice but to be patient...

post #18 of 210

unlocked 16gb gold - sep 20, 3am pacific -> processing, oct

I purchased mine at 6:30 am through the apple store.

 

I just checked my order and it is still saying "Available to ship in October".  Ummm... it's October 8th...  time to send me a shipping date. LOL.

 

16GB Gold AT&T

 

Has anyone that ordered around this time frame received any updates re: theirs?

 

Thanks,

post #20 of 210

Same here (6:30am Eastern)... I have not received any updates other than the "shipping available in October" message.  Very annoying.

post #21 of 210

Does anyone know if you can check an update on the Verizon site? I ordered a 64GB gold and it said ship date 9/30. I have not received the phone or heard anything from Verizon. When I check update on my phones the Verizon site does say my phone number can't be upgraded as one is pending but thats all I can find on the site.

post #22 of 210

For Verizon you can go here and enter the preorder confirmation number found in your confirmation email.

post #23 of 210

Just some status news from Germany. Ordered 64 / Gold on 9/21 with "Pre-Registration-Service" at T-mobile. Official delivering Week is announced 40 (9/30 - 10/5 ... last week ;) ) but it hasn't arrived yet. 

 

After a phonecall with a callcenter member at T-mobile, she told me that there's a inofficial waiting shedule from "around 6 weeks" for the iPhone 5s Gold 64

 

If it's arrived I will post the date here, too.

post #24 of 210

Ordered my 16GB gold Verizon on 9/20 from apple online store, still shows as processing, but got charged for the phone out of my account today, I hear this means it is moving along...hopefully will show preparing for shipment tomorrow after the charge clears.

post #25 of 210

Sorry ordered at 4pm on 9/20

post #26 of 210

I got charged for the phone today to...but it still says processing. Hopefully since they charged my account I will get a shipment confirmation very soon! I ordered the gold iPhone 5s 16GB Verizon on 9/20.

post #27 of 210

I ordered a gold iPhone 5s at 6:00 AM Eastern on 9/20 (about three hours after they went on sale in Pacific time).  I had a ship date of October and today the status changed from "processing"  to "preparing shipment" so I'm hoping it will ship in the next day or so. 

post #28 of 210

I wonder if the cell phone carrier has anything to do with it? I ordered the gold, 32, AT&T from Apple online on 9/20 at 5 pm est & mine still says processing & my card has not been charged yet. :(

I think it probably has more to do with what time you ordered it.  I ordered mine is an AT&T iPhone and I also ordered from Apple online, but I ordered at 6 AM and you didn't order until 5 PM.  If they're filling orders in the order they were received there are probably several ahead of you.  Still, the queue is moving!

post #30 of 210

I figured I'd get "in line" and ordered a gold 5S on 10/4 through Apple's online store.  My ship date says October too.  I told myself that I would be patient knowing it would be weeks before I'd actually get the phone but I'm failing miserably!

post #31 of 210
I ordered a gold 32 gig on Oct 26 from Apple.com. My status simply says "ships october."

Yes, you are definitely right. I am happy it is slowly moving! Just seems like a lot of Verizon phones shipped. And I waited in line on the release day & it seemed like they had a lot less AT&T selections. But maybe it was just more popular. Hopefully mine will process soon! :)

post #33 of 210

I do not see the blue button "Cancel Item" anymore in my order status page.

 

Looks like they have started working on my order.

 

16GB/Gold/AT&T

Ordered via Apple Store app. on 9/20 3:30 am PST.

post #34 of 210
I ordered my gold iPhone 5s 16gb from Att on 9/28 and I got a ship date from 11/6 to 11/26. And it just says processing still.
post #35 of 210

purchased ATT 32gb Gold on 9/20 at 3:30am via Apple.com.  Never saw a change to the update but was sent an email 10/4 saying shipment was on its way.  Delivery date 10/10.  Todays statis still in Anchorage Alaska.  Believe they were all being sent via a slow boat from China.

post #36 of 210

I ordered a Gold 5S 32GB ATT  from Apple online at 3:05AM EST on Sept 20th. Received a  "shipping in 1-3 days" notice with order. Unit arrived on doorstep in Atlanta 5 days later on Sept 25th. Pretty efficient supply chain if stock available.

I stood in line at the ATT store on Sept 20 only to be told there were no gold iPhones. What else could I do but order one there? They said phones ordered in the store would ship by October 10. But when I checked online later, it said my phone would ship Oct 20 - 28. I called to verify and let them know what the store said, but was still told Oct 20. - 28. I got an email yesterday that said its on its way and I should have it tomorrow. Hmmmmm...
