Apple Pushes Back iPhone 5 Ship Date

(CNN) — People waiting on their new iPhone 5 will have to wait a little longer.

Apple says pre-orders of the phone won’t ship for three to four weeks.

Pre-order response to the new smartphone has been massive – outstripping analysts’ expectations.

The company says it received more than two-million pre-orders in the first 24 hours, double the number it got for last year’s record-setting iPhone 4S release.

Apple’s initial promise to ship pre-ordered phones in a week, the same day they become available at Apple Stores and other retailers, was pushed back just an hour after pre-orders opened up at midnight Thursday.

Now, it could take up to a month for the phones to ship.
