    I put in to have my held at UPS as well. UPS in my area tends to deliver anywhere between 5-9pm. And I expect tomorrow would be close to the latter with the extra deliveries they will be doing.

    AT&T is FedEx this year, I think they were last year too.. FedEx with Standard Overnight is a crap-shoot, anywhere from from 8am-8pm, can never tell.

    They’re shipping UPS to me and my drivers suck. I mean they really suck. They come late all the time. Just drop in the porch. No knock or anything. I come out in the morning and I have a box on the porch even when I check when I go upstairs for the night between 9-10. They’re mostly good 5-8 but plenty of times Way afterwards. They drop the wrong packages on porch’s. I’ve gotten my neighbors packages several times when our address are totally different (3842 vs 3789 for example). So anything I can do to circumvent that process works for me lol.

    For what it's worth, mine is coming UPS and it says signature required. Unfortunately, I'm close to a hub, and they always hit my house on the way back for the night. So it could be late.

    Yeah I’m not that far from the hub which is probably why my area is later in the day. I would expect them to have extra delivery trucks out too as well. But just in case I’m going to have them hold it at the hub and pick it up sometime tomorrow morning to avoid any uncertainty.

    My UPS is awful too. I'm having mine sent to a pickup location so I might actually get it before 9 pm

    While we're waiting, what is the new deal with restoring your Photos / Apps / Music / Ringtones w/o iTunes 12.7 (removal of features).. I can see see "Tones" on iTunes. Seems like it's only for "iTunes / Apple" purchases. Stuff you personally own and sync are still there in iTunes

    Not completely sure. I don’t think you can sync apps anymore via iTunes. I backup and restore via iCloud so I don’t really both with iTunes anymore. My pictures don’t get backed up in iCloud because I don’t want to pay for storage. They go to google photos. So the only pictures that will come back to my device are those in my photo stream since they don’t take up space. Everything else is OTA for me.

    Oddly enough my UPS shipping showed it departed PA at 10:40am. I just looked at it again and it said it departed PA again at 8:20pm. Still not worried about getting it tomorrow, just found it weird.

    Still no tracking info for the 8 plus I ordered for my mother right at launch time which is a little annoying. I ordered through sprint like I do every year and I always get them on launch day. Hoping they don't delay the X when I order mine and my wife's.

    STILL waiting for UPS to deliver. They are the absolute worst in this area. Fed Ex is always early. Of course, whenever I get something from AT&T, it’s UPS.

    Can I just bring in my old iPhone 7 into AT&T instead of shipping it back to them? I just get nervous about something happening to it.

    Yea, I’m not sure why it would matter if it’s a “real” AT&T store
