Apple made the iPhone 5, new iPods, and a slew of accessory products available on its online store last night. The excitement surrounding the occasion was certainly there.

Shipping estimates for the iPhone 5 already slipped to “2-3 weeks” just an hour after sales began. Strangely, VerizonAT&T, and Sprint are all still advertising a Sept. 21 ship date.


Apple’s Lightning-30 pin port adaptor also sold out with shipments pushed to October. There was some confusion last evening due to reports of Lightning adapters shipping free with the iPhone  5. Those were apparently glitches, as Apple later confirmed the additional $30 charge.
