Apple and U.S. carriers began accepting iPhone 5 preorders early Friday morning. By 8 a.m. ET, shipping estimates had already slipped to two weeks.
AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint won't be the only U.S. carriers to offer the iPhone 5 later this month. Cricket Wireless will also offer a prepaid, no-contract version of Apple's latest phone, though it will be available a week after it goes on sale elsewhere.
