    The preorder for my wife (128GB Gold) just shipped. It originally had a shipping quote of 9/23-9/30. It was submitted at 3:04 am EST, and was in the 80XX order range. What's confusing to me is that my preorder (128GB Jet Black) is still processing, but was submitted at 2:49 am EST. I received a shipping quote of 10/14-10/21, but I submitted mine first and am in the order range of 6XXX. Both of these preorders were submitted using the myAT&T app.

    Maybe some more cartwheels will help.
    Hey if I thought for a second that it would help, I wouldn't hesitate to do the naked Apple Gods dance on my rooftop.
    ... But I tried that last year and all I got was charged for indecent exposure, lol.

    Do any of you think demand was greater than they expected this time, or that they simply didn't have enough stock available?
    I think the non black models had sufficient stock, probably as much as they have had in previous years. It's the black models that are heavily constrained.

    Yes I do.

    How long does it typically take for the phone to actually be shipped, from the time your credit card is charged and your status changes to Preparing for Shipment?

    At some point, your device will have just shipped. If you go to UPS (sign up for MyChoice, it's great) and track by reference, put in your order number with the last two numbers removed and you should find your order before it goes to shipped (that is if you're going through UPS)

    Apple doesn't send a shipping notification until the device is in Louisville (UPS Worldport) but you can track shipping information LONG before that.

    But my order confirmation says they're shipping it via USPS so that won't help in my case.

    It's funny. I'm relieved that my Iphone order is preparing for shipment and can't be canceled. Now I'm wondering when it will actually ship also, but I'm glad I'm seeing progress. My apple watch, which is arriving tomorrow; has been preparing for shipping for almost a week, since I ordered it.

    Yeah, maybe I should have kept that information to myself lol! It may be sooner than that. My watch 2 was not going to be released until 9/16 anyway.

    I ordered the jet black at 2:15 AM and got delivery of 9/23. Changed my mind and went matte black at around 9:00 AM and got 2-3 week estimate. Still showing processing. I assume it will ship sooner since I ordered on 9/9 and when I go to order today it gives the same 2-3 weeks estimate.

    They always give a date and end up sending before that date even come. I wouldn't worry about the date if I was you. You should get it earlier than expected.
