If you’ve struggled through the chaos of pre-ordering your iPhone 4S at midnight Pacific Time on October 7, 2011, you must be wondering when your order was shipping, and if it would ship in time for when the flagship Apple smartphone launches to retail channels on October 14. Well, if you’re a Sprint customer, you may begin to see some shipping notifications that the iPhone 4S has started to ship.
According to Sprint’s shipping notification that 9to5 Mac obtained, the sold out iPhone 4S has shipped effective on midnight of October 9, 2011 and is scheduled to be delivered overnight, suggesting that the device may arrive on customers’ doorsteps starting Monday or Tuesday.
Additionally, AT&T customers are noting that the devices are now leaving warehouses.
For those who didn’t pre-order the iPhone 4S and enjoy the tradition and ritual of lining up outside an Apple store or any one of Apple’s partners’ storefronts, the iPhone 4S will start going on sale starting at 8 AM on October 14.
