Apple’s New IPhones Face Up to 4 Week Shipping Delays

Apple Inc.’s new iPhones will take as many as four weeks to ship, a sign that early demand for the smartphones is outstripping supply.

The iPhone 6 Plus, which has a larger display, will take three to four weeks for shoppers who pre-ordered online yesterday, according to Apple’s website, as people rushed to buy the handset hours after the company began taking pre-orders. Certain iPhone 6 models, which have a slightly smaller screen, will take seven to 10 business days to arrive, though some versions are still available for delivery on Sept. 19 when the devices are set to go on sale in stores. Pre-orders through some individual carriers’ websites indicate shipments could take even longer.
