Apple may have run out of its day one pre-order stock of the iPhone 4S after its online store availability changed from Delivered by 14 October to 1 – 2 weeks.

It means that if you order an iPhone 4S direct from Apple chances are you won’t be getting the phone until the 21 October at the earliest.

The news however is unlikely to stop Apple having plenty of stock in its many stores around the UK.

Apple likes to ensure those keen to queue are rewarded with the latest and greatest phone.

However while Apple may have possibly run out of stock for pre-orders via its website, the networks are still happy to take your order. The catch of course with that is that you can’t buy the phone without a contract.
