    That's terrible! What I don't understand is, why didn't they catch that during pre-order? I'd be throwing my bank mad shade!

    My 8 says "Order Processed: Ready for UPS". Changed up to pick up at my local UPS facility a mile away from my house. I'll be there at 9 when they open Friday morning.

    Maybe it's because most are waiting for the X, but it sure does seem calm around here for it to be iPhone launch week. Usually the forums are crazy with people tracking flights from China by now.

    I've preordered before so I know I'll have this by Friday but mine hasn't even begun to show signs of being ready to go.

    Yeah. It's dead as heck in here! I started the traditional carrier preorder thread and basically talks to myself for three days. Sad. ☹️

    I know! Usually each carrier has a preorder thread, and they're all fairly active. Well, maybe not the Sprint one. I'm getting the X too though, so I guess I'll see how crazy it gets then.

    Last year for the iPhone 7 / 7+ this site was so very busy / anxious about delivery etc.. maybe it's just run its course and people just are not that into the phone. I enjoy coming here, answering questions, etc. I used to be very active on the Apple site, but I changed jobs and not available to help as often, so I left. I come to iMore when time permits.

    It's usually crazy every year around iPhone launch. I've been around here since 2008, and it's definitely the quietest I've seen it.

    Ok, did my own research. My package weighs .70kg which is 1.5 lbs. Has to be the phone because the watch with box weighs almost 3lbs. Mystery solved.
    How can the watch weigh more than the iPhone?

    The first Apple Watch I owned came in a gigantic box with another box inside with all the accessories. I'd say it would easily outweigh a phone if it came like the 1st gen watches.

    At least you can see yours My apple order has been showing Preparing for Shipment since Saturday and I cannot see it at all using the Track by Reference with UPS.

    I was on the phone with AT&T yesterday due to them having me on the wrong program 30-months instead of 24 months. They said my phone already shipped, even though the AT&T site stills shows "preparing to ship" It's just one of those quirks you come to hate when getting your new iPhone. Sometimes "shipping/tracking" does not show up until last minute on Thursday even though it's actually moving now. Maybe they know once we get tracking we drive UPS / FedEx crazy with "holding" and "times" and "rerouting" that maybe they hold back shipping info as long as possible.

    I think we will have a lot of people #%#@$% here when they go to get the X and find out by 12:10am it's sold out, and like the 7+ last year, none will be in stores. I could be 100% wrong, but that's my prediction. My back up prediction is that they may take the pre-orders 10/27, but will push the delivery out until December.
