Hey @Hippo101 - Thanks for your question here.
Due to the unprecedented popularity of this particular model, these have flown off the shelfs! We're not able to provide a confirmed time from for Back Order statuses at this stage however, it will be first in first out so you're best bet is to place an order if you are keen for this model and it will get fulfilled as soon as possible.
The waiting game is always a difficult one. Our team are working hard to have all orders delivered as soon as possible. To set the right expectation, these orders were from the 23rd of October. Whilst we'd much prefer to have these all finalised today, we'll just need to allow time for this. We appreciate your patience and can't wait to see you with your new iPhone!
Hi @Torigrace I can understand how excited you are to receive your iPhone 12.
