    I just noticed I got an email update from Apple showing my XS Max preparing to ship and they charged my credit card already. While I appreciate the effort, if its not arriving until Friday isn't this a bit premature, typically it would be 1 day before actual shipment/delivery for preparing to ship then shipping and delivery about 1 day later.

    If Apple stated a Friday the 21 deliver then that will be the day.

    Not sure if you can get it any earlier unless your a registered developer

    There have been cases of deliveries before the launch day for non-developers, I was just wondering why they are charging CC way before the ship date.

    My debit card was charged immediately after I made the payment on Best Buy's website.

    Apple did pretty much take all of the Air Shipping out of China for the launch so likely they will ship in time for Friday, deliver to UPS/FedEx a day or two early to be held etc. Not really sure.

    Best Buy took the entire cost of my preordered iPhone Xs Max from my debit card once I made the order last night.

    My nectarine max case has shipped with tracking number. Everything else is still preparing to ship. The case should arrive on Wednesday. Funny that the blue case is estimated to arrive on the 24th.

    Apple Store app says preparing for shipment but my UPS app already updated with the tracking number and shipping info showing an arrival scan in ZhangZhou, China so my Xs Max is on the way. Now I only have to wait impatiently until Friday. Sometimes my UPS Guy doesn’t come until 7:30-8pm. Friday will probably be one of those days.

    Im hoping that Apple is using fedex here in Canada because our postal service may go on strike very soon.

    My blue case has now shipped with delivery strangely enough for Sept 24th, also with FedEx.

    The rest of my order, Watch S4 and two Xs Max are preparing to ship still.

    I have never seen Apple use a country's postal service, always a 3rd party like FedEx, UPS, DHL.

    No tracking for me yet from Apple, but I logged into both Fed Ex and UPS and voila a UPS tracking # is there for me now I can add it to my deliveries app and keep an eye on it.

    Still waiting on Verizon and Apple. I honestly expect stuff tomorrow. They're definitely moving through the motions.

    I’m glad they are using UPS here FedEx has been losing my packages for work left and right to the point where we have to make sure we always have insurance on everything. And we’ve shipped some stuff worth tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars for work.

    Every time I’ve preordered my shipping status on Apple almost never changes until the day it delivers.

    Yep. Mine usually changes the Thursday before it’s delivered on Friday. But I can see all the activity in the UPS app even though Apple doesn’t update.
