Apple announced the released the latest and greatest in their iPhone line earlier this week. The iPhone 5 was set to hit stores on September 21, but if you didn't lock in your pre-order, you're out of luck. When pre-orders opened up Thursday at midnight (2AM our time), Apple sold out of the iPhone 5 in one hour.

It's amazing to think that so many people have iPhones, yet they are still so IN DEMAND. Things got so wild, Apple's online store even had to shut down for a short time. After selling out so quickly, Apple changed the shipping date for the iPhone 5 from September 21, to September 28.

If you're thinking of grabbing the iPhone 5, but didn't get your pre-order in, you might be waiting for quite some time.
