    I’m in NC. But if your tracking shows it in KY, I bet you’ll get it tomorrow as that is the typical hub before it goes to the final destination airport for delivery.

    Out of curiosity is yours a sim-less model?
    No, AT&T sim but I bought it unlocked.

    I'm glad to see many of us are getting our phones before our original estimates (9/28-10/5), but this will be the last time I pre-order. I ordered on 9/14 like everyone else (but later in the morning). It's clear that Apple put no emphasis on those that made the effort, as many of us couldn't get our models on 9/21, as we believed the date of delivery being pushed back meant that initial stock got snapped up by 3am pre-orders. Yet those same models were in-stock locally all around me on 9/21. (Apple Store, Best Buy, Verizon, etc...) Lesson learned....

    I place mine right at 12am PST and still got pushed back. That was even though the order screen and email both said by 9/21. Apple couldn't explain why it changed.

    Ordered mine on the morning of 9/16/18 with the 9/28/18 - 10/2 ship date. Shipped last Thursday, original delivery date was set 10/25/18 on UPS. But got an e-mail this morning that they made a have rescheduled the delivery to Monday.

    My date got upgraded. My order is now shipped and UPS targets delivery for 25-Sep. The original delivery date was 1-5 Oct. Space Gray 256GB Xs Max. I ordered on 16-Sep.
    Just checked my email and UPS MyChoice.
    1) Apple sent ‘Shipped’ email to me and UPS shows estimated delivery date of 9/25
    2) I now realize that this is my Trade-in kit 3)My actual phone ship date remains Oct 1-8

    Really confusing.

    Also, I have seen the XS Max available for pickup, everyday since launch. Tempted to cancel and go to one of the nearby stores here and do the IUP upgrade on site.

    If you still have your cancel option there, then the phone hasn’t shipped. Personally, I’d go ahead and cancel and just get it locally.

    Mine was supposed to be delivered to the UPS hub right near my office but I received a message from UPS today saying they've incorrectly sorted the package and my delivery may be delayed. It's in a town about 40 minutes north of me but hopefully they can bring it down to where it's supposed to be soon.

    Ouch.. that stinks. Hope it gets back to your town today. I've been following my driver via the 'Follow My Delivery' map. His route makes no sense - he's dancing around my house (within a 1/2 mile radius) in no discernible pattern.

    Still no updates from UPS since 9:48 this morning. I'm a little deflated and was really looking forward to getting my phone today. Oh well. First world problems.

    I did take a look, thank you. I’m only getting information on how to return, so I’m past cancellation. It’s says it’s shipped but I see no details of a delivery other than Apple’s original Oct 1-5.

    I did cancel my watch delivery and I picked one up in the store today. I’m loving it. Didn’t realize it before , but the S3 is a really thick watch. The S4 is much better fitting and looking.

    Looks like mine will finally be ready for pickup today. Despite being sorted incorrectly and being sent to a town just north of me, UPS ended up sending it back to a sorting hub in a different state. Luckily it's only a few hundred feet away from me now and I just need to wait for them to open.

    I ordered mine the afternoon of the 17th and received an estimated delivery date between October 1st and 5th. Got a shipping notification on Thursday the 20th showing a scheduled delivery of today, the 25th. Unfortunately my phone hasn't even left China yet (I believe there was a Chinese Holiday this weekend which may have delayed things a bit). I'm still hoping to get it by the end of the week

    Looks like you're in the same boat as my wife.

    If that boat happens to be in China, have your wife pick up his phone and bring it back...

    Picked up a 256GB Space Gray at my apple store today. Shipment must have come in. Didn’t preorder or anything. Bought online about an hour before picking up.
