Problems with Apple Watch orders

10 April 2015

Apple Watch Apple Fanboiz will know that the Apple Watch became available for pre-order this morning, and since then, there's been a bit of bother.

Thanks to huge volumes of traffic, some people have found that the Apple website is unresponsive, groaning under the weight of people wanting the new smartwatch.

What's a little more surprising is the news that there's going to be rather a long wait for the watch to be delivered. While a small number of people bagged an April delivery date, a lot of people have noted on various social networks that they're looking at deliveries in May, with a '4-6 weeks' window being offered.

Some will have to wait until June or July to get the thing on their wrist.

It seems it all depends on which model you've ordered and, seeing as there's a lot of variations you can choose from, there's a lot of variation in delivery dates.

Whether this is a matter of Apple not being able to make their Watch quickly enough to sate demand, or whether this is a case of Apple withholding some stock to make their product feel more exclusive, is anyone's guess. Both aren't out of the realms of possibility.

Either way, the earliest anyone will be getting one is the end of this month.

    Can't wait to see the uproar when they get so hot that it melts through your wrist and makes your hand fall off. Wait a minute and I'll take you there.
