If you haven't got your hands on, or placed a pre-order on the new iPhone 5, then get ready for some iTears. Apple's huge demand for the new smartphone have made the Cupertino-based company push shipping estimates out to 3-4 weeks.

iPhone 5 demand has pushed Apple to increase shipping estimates to reach 3-4 weeks |

Pre-orders opened up for the sixth-generation iPhone 5 last Friday, where they sold a record-breaking 2 million units on its first day. Within a few hours, shipping times spiked up to 2-3 weeks where they stayed there until last night.

Between now and then, the time has slid out another week, pushing it to 3-4 week estimates. We've seen the first few reviews, which have been great - everyone is loving most of the stuff on the new iPhone 5, with most criticisms being the lack of app support for the bigger 4-inch screen, and the ditching of Google Maps in favor for Apple's new navigation and mapping application.
