    Default Preorder Shipping Date

    I wasn't lucky enough to snatch a 7 Plus with a delivery date of the 16th. I ordered a 128 GB one in black. The shipping says 2-3 weeks with a delivery date of October 4-10. Has anyone ever received their iPhone sooner than the estimated arrival date when they preordered? Is Apple pretty much always spot on when it comes to these estimated dates?

    They usually under-promise delivery dates, so I wouldn't be surprised if you receive yours at least a week earlier.

    I'm in the same boat as you and hopeful I'll get mine sooner as well. In the past when I've ordered phones they have usually shipped a bit sooner that was estimated.

    Pretty much this every year. I highly doubt anyone who orders a 7 Plus today that shows a ship date of November won't get it until November. It's good for Apple to have a margin for error when it comes to the ship dates.

    Some versions are still available for 16th delivery, and more than 24 hours after launch.

    I just checked the Apple Store.. this is what I found (your mileage may vary) for what's available for 9/16 delivery if you order now. (AT&T)

    7
    256 Silver
    256 Gold

    7+

    I tried to order directly from AT&T first, but I decided against it when I saw that the delivery date was going to be near the end of October :/

    I was ready to order at 2am pacific time but Sprint website completely crashed for more than an hour. I finally was able to order a 128 gig- Jet black 7+ with a 10/7 ship date. This will be the first year I don't receive my phone on release day. I will go into a sprint store on 9/16 and see if I can pick one up and cancel my order.

    As soon as the site was available. I got the Rose Gold 7+ 256 if you see they never had a 9/16 date for the pluses.

    That's unfortunate, I wish AT&T would've displayed this information in the same way Sprint did.
