    so I'm happy to report I woke up to a shipping email with tracking this morning! finally, after over 3 days of "preparing to ship." oddly though there is no estimated delivery date from apple or on ups yet? my friend's also shipped early this morning and her email from apple had an estimated delivery stated on it. I guess I impatiently wait for an update.

    I got my ship email this morning as well. Also no estimated or scheduled delivery date other than the original Oct. 11th from Apple. I was hoping to have it by the weekend, but I guess it will be Monday now. Better late than never.

    Apple never even gave me a delivery date. When I track it all it tells me is it was scanned at 1.39 am in China and is shipping via UPS worldwide expedited, but no delivery date. My friend's email was sent to her this morning about 4 hours after mine and right in her email it had a Oct 11th estimated Delivery but her tracking number isn't in the system yet on UPS. It's just a little bizarre.

    FYI, for everyone that was stuck in "preparing to ship" for days like myself... I found out from one of our Chinese suppliers at work this morning, that it is a national holiday there this week. Most businesses were closed or had limited staff monday-wednesday and some were closed all week. So I suppose that explains the slow down a bit.

    How can they have a holiday for the whole week? That sounds a bit crazy

    I placed my order September 20 at 3:15 am EDT, just 15 minutes after sales opened. It has been sitting at preparing since September 30.

    A lot of their holidays are more than one day long. It's just part of their culture I suppose. Public holidays in China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Ahhhh...finally. Status changed to Shipped a few hours ago, but damned, I bet it's too late for what would have to be a Friday delivery to get it before the weekend. That blows! Although there was one time when they overnighted me a MacBook Pro w/ Retina display...all the way from China. It works because China is 15 hours ahead and I'm on the West coast!

    The tracking says only one line: "ZhengZhou, China 10/03/2013 11:36 A.M. Origin Scan"

    It also says "Shipped by "UPS Saver". From the research I've done, that appears to be the Express 2-3 day shipment type, is that correct? The other shipment method is "World Ease" that I have seen as part of this and other iPhone 5s shipment threads that I've seen.

    Man, can you believe this? ONE DAY earlier would have meant Friday. Yes, I know this is a "first-world" problem if I've ever seen one. That notwithstanding, Apple has conditioned me to expect better. Much better.

    As of 1:45 am EST mine shipped too. Says it shipped by UPS Worldwide Expedited which UPS states as "2-5 Business Days" so looks like mine may be a while. Oh well at least it is on its way.

    Mine says Thursday the 10th as well now, so a full week..... My wife's got to us from China in 3 days, shipped on monday the 23rd, and delivered on Wednesday. Not sure why this is taking so long.

    Usually it delivers sooner than the original ETA. The shipping method is anywhere from 2-5 business days so I think they give an ETA of the worst case scenario until it gets closer to you. I think everyone's ETA is currently 10/10.

    I am going to assume you ordered the Gold model? I placed my order right when they went on sale on the 20th and it just shipped today. So hopefully they will get to your order soon!

    My ATT order says shipped, but my UPS tracking number says they have created the label, but does not have a delivery date yet. Any idea when I can expect it? I'm gonna be out of my office certain days next week. Don't want my iphone passed around the office like its a normal mundane package.

    I also ordered on 9/21. Space grey 64 gb att from apple online store. Att seems to be shipping them faster than apple store, I guess because less orders to fill. Thinking of canceling and ordering from att.

    I ordered mine (16gb Gold) around 6:00 AM on September 20th and my status is still showing Processing as well. I'm hoping that we see a status change by next week.
