iPhone 4 not shipping until July 14th

Sky-high levels of demand for the iPhone 4 have caused the shipping date for devices preorded online to slip to the 14th of July, long after the smartphone will become available in stores on June 24th.

Apple had originally told UK customers that the overwhelming interest and online pre-orders for the smartphone would result in its arrival on July 2nd, but this has been revised to a date that will seem aeons away for eager fans.

Although Apple confirmed that the shipping date had been altered, it would not comment on the reasons behind this extended waiting period.

It is not unreasonable to assume that the iPhone 4 will be quickly out of stock in the majority of locations when it becomes available this Thursday via most of the UK's major network providers.

The hype surrounding the iPhone 4 has been more intense than Apple anticipated, with pre-orders outstripping the 3G S model which arrived during roughly the same period in 2009.
