I was able to order a silver 64 GB iPhone 5s for my brother who has courageously served this country. He deserved it. And after that, I was happy. I also got one for myself. If there's anything I don't cut back in, it's my mobile devices.
And even now, you can still get iPhone 5s (iPhone 5c models as well if that's your color) with a 7-10 day ship time if you go with a carrier. The unlocked T-mobile models, ones that I bought, will take a bit longer.
All in all, it was a wonderful ordering experience not seen in previous years. Getting the iPhone 4s was an ordeal and I don't even want to talk about the iPhone 5.
I still have a mind to see if I can get to an Apple store to get one and cancel my online order if there are still stock left this even or sometimes this weekend.
