    Default Re: Stuck in "Preparing for Shipment"

    I order a Black 256gb 7 plus 2 days after launch. I was given a delivery window of Oct. 4-10th. After 4 days in the "preparing for shipment" cycle my phone finally went to shipped. During that time my delivery window bounced to Oct.3rd-9th and back to 4th-10th. Now the Apple store still lists delivery date 4-10th but the email I receved gave me a delivery date of Oct. 7th and UPS shows Oct. 13th!?! I do not mind waiting I just have issue that the date is all over the place as I need to schedule a gap in my schedule to be home to recieve shipment.

    Update - Despite no further movement in scanning now UPS has moved my delivery date up to the 5th. Apple still lists it at 7th delivery or 4th-10th depending on where I look.

    I ordered my iphone 7+ JB on September 9th @ 12:25. My phone has been stuck in "preparing for shipment" since last Sunday (9/25). My credit card was authorized on 9/25 but fell off on Thursday 9/29. I see it is now showing another authorization, but still shows "preparing for shipment". Apple customer service was less than helpful. It has now been "preparing for shipment" for 9 days. Anyone else dealing with this?

    Oh yes. Ordered 2 phones, a 7 and 7 Plus, both matte black 128GB, on launch day at AT&T.

    7... original estimated ship date 9/23-9/30. Was actually shipped on 9/17 and delivered 9/19 (exceeded expectations).

    7 Plus... original estimated ship date 10/21-10/28. On 9/20 status was changed to "Preparing to ship" with the estimated ship dates unchanged. It's been that way ever since (13 days).

    I'm chilling with my 6 Plus and not getting my hopes up for an earlier delivery. In the meanwhile, I'm reading up on various reviews and iOS10 features and what others are discovering about their new 7 and 7 Plus. Looking at cases, have ordered 5 and returned one. I've learnt that with new products, the anticipation and anxiety build up are rarely ever worth the (more-than-likely) letdown when timelines are missed.

    So I'm chilling with my 6 Plus until the end of October, and if it's delayed,... I'll just chill some more...

    Cheers!

    My phone stayed in "Preparing for Shipment" for 10 days, and now has went back to processing. Apple customer service gives me no answers at all. I have a student in my classroom that just ordered his +JB on Friday who has a delivery date of November 13 and is already preparing for shipment. SO frustrated!
