It has come to my attention that maybe everyone is getting there iPhones delivered so late is because apple just launched them in India and most of them are going over there. It's all about the money folks. apple gets more money for an iPhone over there folks. So for an American company catering to Americans first. At any rate , don't hold your breath on getting that matte black or jet black anytime soon. It's going to India first. Please share your thoughts on this. Thanks everyone.
