Not all products are created equal, with some products having a bigger purchase window than others.
All products, expect the iPhone 4S that is shipped with Apple’s next-day shipping charges, have until December 21st to get the orders in on time for a Christmas Day delivery. The iPhone 4S orders had to be in by December 4th, so you’ve already missed the deadline for having the phone delivered on time for Christmas.
No worries though. I’m sure a photo of an iPhone 4S and a nice note would suffice for the Apple geek on your list.
