Pope Francis Visit to New York and Philadelphia Will Delay iPhone 6S Deliveries

Joe Rossignol, writing for MacRumors:

UPS, a courier service that frequently delivers Apple pre-orders, has posted a temporary service notice on its website that states no pickups and deliveries will be available in the following ZIP code areas of NYC and Philadelphia between Thursday, September 24 and Saturday, September 26 due to security measures.

My wife figured this out right after we ordered our phones last week. I’m guessing we’ll get them next Monday. I’m not sure what would have happened if we’d ordered them for in-store pickup. So much of the city is getting shut down, I’m not sure the Apple Store will be able to get deliveries.
