It seems that Pope Francis will impact more than only the people who come to see him during his visit to United States. According to The Verge, some customers of the Apple iPhone 6S have been warned by the company that they may experience delays in the delivery of their smartphones. Here is the full letter released:
Thank you for your recent Apple Store purchase.
Your iPhone 6s 64GB Rose Gold is scheduled for delivery on Friday, September 25th. However, due to traffic restrictions expected for that day in New York City, your delivery may be delayed.
If we’re unable to complete the delivery on Friday, we’ll also be making Saturday deliveries at most locations.
To track your package, please visit UPS with your tracking number: XXXX.
We know you’re looking forward to receiving your new iPhone, and we apologize if your order is affected.
Even though Apple hasn’t specifically put the finger on Pope Francis’ visit, it is clear that the visit by the Holy Father will impact traffic in New York City from Thursday until Friday overall. The Pope is coming to New York after his visit to Cuba. His visit will definotely be attended by several hundred thousand people. So yes, traffic delays are to be expected. It’s a great social event for many that are of the same faith as the Pope, so a few hours or days in getting your brand new Apple iPhone 6S is literally a small price to pay for such a visit.
