An iPhone ordered through a carrier like T-Mobile is unlikely to ship until two months after the order is placed, according to a story by Steve Kovach at Business Insider. Kovach wishes he’d gone to an Apple store, where the phones are generally in stock. (A colleague got an iPhone 6 Plus in 20 minutes at an Apple store.)
Apple is selling every iPhone it makes according to CEO Tim Cook–and a two-month backlog for non-preferred vendors (that is, not the Apple store) seems pretty normal. No correlation between worldwide demand for the iPhones and increased suicide attempts at Apple’s factories in China has yet been reported.
