White said the quick rise in the expected delivery time suggested much stronger demand than Apple expected. Last year, one-week delivery of the iPhone 4S was available into the afternoon of the first order day.

'Clearly, iPhone 5 fever is in full swing,' White said.

By the afternoon, only Sprint was still promising delivery by next Friday. Verizon Wireless said delivery would take two weeks, and AT&T said it would take '14 to 21 business days.'

Apple's stock rose $8.02, or 1.2 percent, to $691 in afternoon trading, after hitting an all-time high of $696.98 earlier in the day.
