iPhone 5 shipping times slip to 2-3 weeks, Lightning port adapter shipments push to October

Last evening, Apple made the iPhone 5, new iPods and a slew of its accessory products available on its online store. The excitement surrounding the occasion was certainly there. Just an hour after sales began, shipping estimates for the iPhone 5 have already began slipping to 2-3 weeks. Strangely, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are all still advertising a 9/21 ship date.

Furthermore, Apple’s Lightning-30 pin port adaptor has also sold out, with shipments being pushed back to October. There had been some confusion last evening with some reports of Lightning adapters shipping free with iPhone  5s. Those were apparently glitches with Apple confirming the additional $30 charge.
