I just got an email from apple stating the following:
Dear Apple Store Customer,
You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped.
This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.
In the event that you will not be available to accept delivery on June 23rd, it may be more convenient to use our pre-sign delivery option by visiting our Order Status website at Apple Order Status.
The Apple Store Team
Did anyone else get one of these?!?!

I got that exact same email. Could it be possible that we get them on the 23rd? I find it hard to believe that Apple isn't going to make FedEx hold these things till the 24th.
This email IS from APPLE!

It's not uncommon on releases such as this. The delivery date is probably for the day it will arrive at your local distribution center, but I can almost assure you that there will be a "hold for June XX, 2010 delivery". It's how a lot of other companies handle releases with UPS that I've experienced. It's a good thing though, because you know your device is in town and ready to get to you in the am on release day. Woot!

I too received the same e-mail. Its good to note that according to FedEx Tracking, my iPhone has arrived in Oakland, CA (via Alaska, Hong Kong & China). Id say the 23rd is looking very good for delivery.

I wonder if they are going to deliver in the 23rf they are emailing to give a heads up since most of us are planning in being available in Thursday and not Wed seems weird that they would send this email if they were still going to hold until 24th.
Another theory? Maybe they are trying to lighten the burden in FedEx and splitting delivery dates in heavier market areas?
All just speculation. I hope it's true though!!!

I'm kinda wondering if they are just deciding there are so many deliveries they can't possibly guarantee them all in one day and are going to relieve some pressure and deliver some early. Why else would Appl send that email? It was very clear that it would be delivered on the 23rd

Also I think right now APPLE is very afraid of what is going to happen on June 24 with AT&T system activating these phones. It makes one wonder, would they allow some of these phones to get delivered early in order stem some of the load on the June 24.
I agree with most others it seems unlikely we'll get them early, but I sure got my iPad a day early!
