updated 09:11 am EST, Mon December 3, 2012

China, Russia, South Korea among bigger launch regions

The iPhone 5 will ship to more than 50 more countries this month, Apple has just announced. On December 7th the phone will arrive in South Korea. The bulk of launches are scheduled for the 14th, and include: Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, the Bahamas, Bahrain, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Ecuador, Grenada, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Jordan, Kuwait, Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldova, Montenegro, Panama, Paraguay, the Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela. On the 21st the device will arrive in Barbados, Botswana, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Egypt, Guinea, the Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Niger, Senegal, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St.Vincent and the Grenadines, Tunisia, Uganda, and Vietnam.

China was already known, but the remaining countries weren't, and should help fulfill Apple's 2012 rollout plans for the iPhone 5. In Australia, New Zealand, and some Asian countries, meanwhile, the phone is now reportedly shipping in two to four days from Apple's online store. The phone is still listed as having a one-week delay in places like the US, Canada, and the UK, but those countries may soon fall into line if previous patterns continue.
