    My black iPhone 7 Plus has been stuck in "Preparing..." for 4 days. My card has been charged. I can't get any tracking information. I'm really getting frustrated. I've seen people in these forums who ordered their phones after me, expecting deliveries as early as today (the 19th). I got my confirmation email at 3:14am eastern on the 9th. I don't understand what the hold up is.

    Don't worry too much. I've seen a lot of times where this happens and next thing they know it's in their city or at the door!
    I know once I ordered a huge set of floor standing speakers and amp and preamp for the home stereo system. It was supposed to be 3 day shipping. On the day before it was supposed to be shipped it was still in California and I'm in va. It was at my door 24 hours later

    I think they're just not updating their tracking info.
    My delivery date has been moved up twice to an earlier date but my tracking info says my phone is still in China.

    Yeahhh I don't think that's the case with mine. I've had zero change to anything but my status. It went from processing to preparing a few days ago. No tracking info. No date changes. Nothing.

    Mine is still showing processing. There are people here who ordered hours after me that got their phones Friday. I haven't even been charged yet.

    I think a lot depends on the phone type and color. This year since they only put the dual camera in the plus model, it has now become the more popular one to get unlike last year. I like many others wanted Matte Black even though mine will be in an otter box commuter case. I just prefer to have everything almost invisible when I look at the screen and not have the white borders on the front.

    Mine changed to Preparing for Shipment Saturday morning around 8am CST but hasn't changed since. Hoping it changes today and arrives much sooner then Oct 4-10th.

    For me its a nicer upgrade since I'm coming from Iphone 6 64gb and going to Iphone 7 plus 128gb matte black.

    I went with the 256 thinking that it wasn't as popular thus it would be easier to get. I'm still processing. Granted my pre-order was done Saturday night rather than with pre-orders started. So I'll be waiting a little longer. My ship by date is 10/5.

    I ordered the jet black 256 GB 7 plus on 9/9 as soon as the site went live. My confirmation email from Apple @ 3:12 am is showing a ship date of 10/18 - 10/31. I sure hope it ships sooner. If not no worries, I can wait it out to get the device I want.

    I happen to be a IT Tech and love getting my hands on new gadgets so its making me crazy waiting to see the ship date and the hope that it will be bumped up which it probably will be.

    But your right its seeing other post that gets you even more crazy about waiting, I have a browser tab opened to my apple store and I hit refresh a few times an hour lol to hope it changes.

    Still no change

    I ordered the 7 Plus 256g in rose gold on Friday 9/16. Gave me an estimated delivery date of 10/11-10/17. Yesterday went from processing to preparing for shipment and my card has been charged. Hoping it's not stuck in preparing for shipment for too long🙏🏻

    You are not alone. My order for a Black 256GB iPhone 7 Plus has been preparing for shipment since 9/16 at 4:49 AM. I became frustrated. But after reading reports of buzzing noises originating from the processor and relatively dim displays, I am no longer looking forward to delivery.

    Well I finally got a shipment notification this morning but it's been stuck in Zheng Zhou for about 7 hours. 🙄

    I'm not a very patient person lol.

    My phone is stuck in the delivery date cha cha dance: it's for the 27-29!
    No, it's for the 22nd!
    No, it's coming on the 21st!
    No, it'll be for the 22nd!
    Actually we don't know, we don't have an effin clue!

    Etcetera.
    I am seriously rethinking my need to upgrade at this point, absolutely NO device is worth this nonsense.
    I'm really liking my 6 Plus more and more, lol.

    If the processor in your 7 Plus is noiseless, and its display bright rather than dim as well warm rather than yellowish, it might be worth the trouble.

    Whatever happens with your delivery, may your iPhone 7 Plus be as perfect as Tim Cook's.

    I think I'm done clicking refresh and checking shipping info and all that. It just makes me frustrated lol. I think I'll just go back to regular life and be pleasantly surprised if I come home and see my package delivered. My father in law stays with us so he will be able to sign for me.

    LOL I WISH!!!

    But this morass is a sure way to kill iPhone envy, for me. I use a smartphone because it's supposed to simplify my life.
    However this nonsense is complicating everything to the Nth degree, and I swear things were easier back in the days of my Motorola Pebble flip phone, for real.
    Never again.

    Ordered on 9/9 and got a shipping date of 10/10-17 for a 256 Jet Black 7 Plus. Just got a shipping notification this morning. Apple says it will arrive by the 26th but the UPS tracking indicates the 23rd. I hope the UPS estimate is the correct one!

    NEVER AGAIN will I try to get a new Apple device on launch day.
    Will I just buy new iPhones months after their release?
    Possibly. IF I decide the device is worth it.
    But seriously, Apple makes a very strong point in favor of the competition, right now.
