Virgin Mobile’s US stores get the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus a week late

by John_A

Virgin Mobile’s US stores will get both the standard iPhone 8 and Plus models on September 29th. That’s a full week after every other major American carrier gets the device, which is rough for Virgin Mobile in particular since it now only offers iPhones.

The carrier gave no reason for the delay, which also affects preorders: Its customers can reserve an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus on September 22nd, when the other big American carriers start getting their shipped. It’s possible that Virgin Mobile got bumped lower in priority, as that delayed schedule is in line with Apple’s global shipments to Greece, Poland and Russia, Apple Insider observed.

Virgin Mobile’s website states that customers can reserve the iPhone X on October 27th, when everyone else can, but it’s not clear if that smartphone’s delivery will also be delayed.
