    Yes, UPS is pretty strict when it comes to iPhone deliveries. A signature is a must.

    On website it says Apple uses fedex which I'm hoping they do for my delivery as purolator is the worst. UPS isn't bad. But based on ordering all the iPads and iPhones, I'm in Canada and a Signature has always been required. Doesn't have to be yours, anyone who answers the door is fine

    Both UPS and FedEx always require signatures on packages shipped from Apple.

    Not sure about UPS, but FedEx has a link on the tracking page to a release form. You should be able to print that out, sign it and leave it for the delivery guy. I think you can also provide instructions (like leave it at a neighbor, toss it over the fence, etc).

    It says there is a way to "pre-sign" for the package on the order status website (via Apple that is)...but I wasn't able to find it anywhere myself and looked over the entire page and all links. I know in the past it has been the same way with the iPhone, but I was hoping I might be able to go out and grab food and not worry about missing the USP guy. I'm just gonna stock up with the assumption I'll be at home all day waiting for him I suppose!

    Depends on who you ordered from. Last time when I ordered the iPhone 5 through Verizon Wireless, they use FedEx. The delivery guy just leave it on my porch. So I expect the same thing with my iPhone 6 Plus. And that's why I prefer FedEx than UPS. UPS always require signature or you have to go to their distribution center to pick up.

    Apple requires a signature on all deliveries not just iphones. If you miss the delivery just call and tell them to hold it at the depot and pick it later.

    Like Raptor007 said you can just pick it up later in the day at the depot where it's being held. I've done this plenty of times with laptops, phones, models. . .it sure beats trying to play tag with the delivery man. They always come when no one is home at my place. Always. . .

    Ouch... I ordered thru Apple buy I'll check the status of the order regularly and will call fedex to pick it up at their place in case I miss it.. I have a surveillance system in my house and the front door is covered but theft is always a risk.

    Is there a next door neighbor that could sign and hold it for you

    Ugh this is always a dilemma that bothers me the most when waiting for items to be delivered. I ordered mine through Rogers and I'll be picking it up in store.

    Any time I've had anything ordered through UPS and I wasn't home to sign, I called them the minute I got home with the card they leave on the door in hand and switch it to pick up, then drive up to the distribution center. If you live within a reasonable radius of one you can do this. They usually will have it available for pickup same day and they'll usually tell you when the truck is expected back (and therefore when your package will be available).

    Apple does give the option of signing a release form and putting it on the door. I have gotten deliveries of phones and iPads with the release document. But I am in a fairly safe and secluded area. We get lots of packages and the drivers know us well. I have had them "sign for me" for shipments worth several thousand dollars.

    You can also have it re-directed.

    You can put a note on the door and have UPS have a neighbor sign for it, if you trust them. lol

    I live in a rural area and I'm on first name basis with my Mailman, UPS guy and FedEx gal (Smile), they just leave my package(s) on my door step, however I realize this is not the norm. May I suggest giving them a call and having them deliver to your job or asking a neighbor to look out.

    When I ordered the iPhone5 from Apple, I was able to have them hold it at the UPS depot and I went and picked it up - did that via the UPS tracking page...
    Once the phone is shipped I also have the option of changing the address, but I think there is a small charge for that... I think I'll just sign a release so they can leave them at my door. Thanks
