    Apparently so. I just received my UPS tracking and it shows that my iPhone departed Chek Lap Kok (HK) today. It still says 10/14 as expected delivery.

    If I'm not mistaken, customs at this place tend to stop the freight and check every single hole. Some iPad2 were delayed because of this.

    If you bought from Apple, yes its coming from HK. Remember, these devices were just built and had the final OS loaded. No time for them to be sitting in a warehouse at Cupertino in CA.

    Almost everything that Apple makes comes from China (as at the minimun, the final assembly point), and comes to the US through Hong Kong. Nothing extraordinary about this shipping route.

    My iPhone 4S just made it to U.S. soil. It landed in Anchorage about 90 minutes ago. It has to clear customs, then make the flight to Phoenix.

    I will be here by Friday ... I'm hoping for a Thursday delivery.

    Yeah, Apple probably has the like 4th master place in China. They made/held them there. It's no big deal though. You should still get you're device on the 14th. Wait do you have Sprint, Verizon or AT&T?
