If you plan on ordering a gold iPhone 5s online, I hope you’re into anticipation and delayed gratification. Apple has updated their shipment times online, and gold models are showing that they won’t be ready until October!
Meanwhile, silver and space gray models won’t ship for seven to 10 days after an order is placed.
