    I ordered from the Apple Store app with a guaranteed delivery day of the 19th, but my order still says preparing to ship. Does this usually happen? Figured I would've gotten an email saying it shipped at some point today with tracking, but nothing so far. For those that ordered in years past is this normal? Do they usually wait until the day of to send shipment notification and then the phone just shows up on launch day?

    Mine also says "processing." Mine is not set to be delivered til 10/1-10/6 😞 I called yesterday to make sure everything was okay as I hadn't seen any activity on my card and they said all was well. I was really hoping they'd say it had already shipped and that the site hadn't updated! Haha! No such luck!

    Mine said preparing to ship until this morning and then I got the email saying it has shipped. Funny thing is on the tracking it says it shipped on the 16th. So maybe Apple is slow updating the status

    Same here. Found the tracking number a couple of days ago using MyUPS, but just got the ship email from Apple this morning. It even says it was shipped on the 15th, lol. Leaving Louisville soon I hope!

    Not sure it’s a "guaranteed deliver day". With that said, yes, the info on the Apple website is somewhat sluggish in getting updated. I guess it comes down to trusting Apple to get it done. Would you rather have them working on getting you the phone that you ordered or working on updating their website with order status?

    There are ways of finding your phone, even without a confirmed SHIPPED status from Apple. Go to UPS and search by REFERENCE NUMBER. Use the telephone number associated with your Apple Store account as the reference number. People have found their tracking number as much as a day or two ahead of Apple's status update.

    Tried that several times on there and FexEx and it didn't come up with anything. I'm not super worried, it's just a phone but I did want to know just in case I was missing something.

    I just looked at my card (again) and there is a preauth! Yay! So, naturally, I went to check my order status and it says "Preparing for Shipment!" Yay!!

    Ordered from Apple on the 12th with a delivery date for the 19th. One has been sitting in Harrisburg for two days and left there this morning. The other one left Kentucky this morning also. Delivery is on time for tomorrow. The Apple site just finally updated today to "shipped"

    Apple Store status: Shipped
    UPS Status: "In transit:On time" from Harrisburg, PA. If it was going direct to Philly or Lawnside, NJ it should have arrived NLT 0400 this morning.
    But it still shows "Scheduled delivery, Friday, 9/19/2014 by the end of the day.

    Mine now says "ships in 1-3 business days" after the rep on the phone told me it would get to me tomorrow so idk what's going on. Not entirely surprised though, my luck with these things is comical at best.

    They told me "it just didn't make it on the truck" which I found surprising of course. I ordered pretty early last Friday. Oh well.
