Consider this your public service announcement of the day: If you want an iPhone before the end of October, you need to order it as soon as possible.
Due to incredible demand, iPhone 13 wait times have become longer than first expected – and they’re even longer if you want any of the Pro models.
As of right now, if you go to order an iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 mini on Apple.com, the site says you should receive your iPhone between October 8 and October 13, which isn’t that bad compared to the Pro models.
If you want to order the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max, on the other hand, you’ll have to wait until October 20 to October 27. Basically, over a month from now.
Although high demand is bad for wait times, it’s also great for business. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the “iPhone 13 series pre-orders are higher than those for iPhone 12 series but in line with market expectations.”
Moreover, Kuo has also mentioned that iPhone shipments were expected to increase by 16% in 2021. So Apple’s supply may cover the increasing demand for the newest iPhone lineup.
If you were one of the lucky few that managed to pre-order an iPhone 13 on Friday, right after Apple announced it, then you should receive it by September 24. If you haven’t ordered it, you should consider doing so ASAP.
