I'm not sure how reliable this statement is, but I walked into a Rogers store on Sunday and a rep had told me that Apple had released a statement stating that they haven't even started to reproduce more iPhone 5s gold phones, as they don't even have the parts for the home/finger print scan button. He said that it could potentially take another 30-60 days for stock to come in.
Again, this is coming from a store rep...caution ahead.
I hope this is not true. I'm now in position 2085 and have been waiting since Sept 30th. At this rate, next year is looking like a strong possibility.
...This is not a Rogers issue...and I echo the comments made by others about how Apple is releasing to other markets before they fulfill their commitment to backordered markets. That's Apple for you. Now back to sipping on my kool-aid...what was I just typing?...oh yes...Apple is the best! 😉
So has anyone actually received a gold phone since renewing after launch date? (I don't meant "reserving" and having a # in line). I renewed for a new 2 year contract on Sept 24 and still no iPhone.
