Some iPhone 5 pre-order customers who had their orders pushed back by one to two weeks beyond the official September 21st release will receive the device sooner than expected.
An email from Apple reads:
We have some good news concerning your recent iPhone 5 purchase. We expect it to be delivered to you on the first day of iPhone 5 availability — Friday, September 21.
The delivery date we previously sent you was not accurate.
Once your order ships, we’ll send a Shipping Notification email with tracking information. You can always visit apple.com/orderstatus for the most up-to-date status of your order.
We apologize for any confusion and appreciate your business.

Apple had recently said that the demand of the iPhone 5 exemplified by the pre-orders being sold out has “completely blown away” the firm.
