First iPhone 5s have begun shipping from China, emails say

Pre-ordered iPhone 5s have begun to ship and are on their way from China, according to various reports.

Numerous people who pre-ordered their iPhone 5s have begun to say they’ve received shipping emails notifying them their iPhone 5 has left Zhengzhou, China. Foxconn, one of Apple’s iPhone suppliers, has a factory in Zhengzhou.

Many of the emails say the devices began to ship Sunday and are scheduled to arrive at their locations on Friday, the iPhone 5’s launch date.

Among those reporting the emails was 9 to 5 Mac, which said one of its reporters has also received an email.

However, not all pre-ordered iPhone 5s will arrive to customers by Sept. 21.

Apple announced Monday that iPhone 5 pre-orders eclipsed 2 million on their first day, doubling the record Apple set with the iPhone 4S. As a result, the company said, many people won’t get their device until October.

If you would still like to get your iPhone 5 on its launch date, you can try waiting in line Friday at any of the retailers that will sell the device. They include Apple, AT&T;, Verizon, Sprint, Best Buy, Target, RadioShack and Wal-Mart.
