iPhone 4 pre-orders sell out; Apple bumps ship date for new orders

Summary:After the absolute mania that went on yesterday for anyone trying to pre-order the iPhone 4 (or the poor souls that work for AT&T and Apple who surely had to deal with some annoyed customers), it looks as though Apple has already sold out of its initial supply as there is a later shipping date for orders placed now.

After the absolute mania that went on yesterday for anyone trying to pre-order the iPhone 4 (or the poor souls that work for AT&T and Apple who surely had to deal with some annoyed customers), it looks as though Apple has already sold out of its initial supply as there is a later shipping date for orders placed now.

As you can see in the image above, Apple has pushed the shipping date back to July 2nd for anyone purchasing an iPhone 4 from now on. Given how much popularity this smartphone has already generated, there could be more shipping delays down the line.

If you miraculously managed to navigate through Apple's site that broke down often yesterday and ordered an iPhone 4 already, your copy should be ready on June 24th still, but double check your receipt to make sure. This doesn't mean you can't get an iPhone 4 next Thursday, though, as there is always the option of standing (and possibly camping out) in line at your local Apple or AT&T Store on launch day.

Note that Apple Stores will open at 7:00 AM local time on June 24th, so set your alarms.
