iPhone 5 Begins Shipping

Start putting that shrine together


The iPhone 5 won't technically arrive until the end of the week, but some who pre-ordered the new device have already received confirmation that their handset has shipped. A few readers of 9to5Mac have sent in emails showing that their iPhone 5s shipped from Zhengzhou, China yesterday. Infamous Apple supplier Foxconn has a factory not too far from there, so it seems that the company has been hard at work getting Apple's newest iDevice out the door.
