Apple's iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro smartphones became available for preorder on Friday morning. Preorders are meant to arrive at people's doors on September 20, when Apple's new iPhones are being officially released.

After just an hour of preorders, many of the iPhone 11 model's delivery dates slipped to a week after September 20.Advertisement

Among several other models, the midnight green iPhone 11 Pro Max with 64 GB of storage is delivering between October 1 and October 4.

September 20 Apple Store pickups for pre-orders are becoming unavailable, too. Of the 12 Apple Stores in New York City, only the Staten Island location still offers a September 20 pickup for the green iPhone 11 with 64 GB of storage.

Apple might have more limited inventory of certain iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models, which could explain why delivery dates are being extended for those models. Still, there's clearly a lot of demand for Apple's newest iPhones.
