If you ordered a T-Mobile unit via Apple early and got a November 10th-17th date, check your order. It looks like most or all of them has been upgraded. They're now November 3rd delivery. 🙂

As someone who recently switched to T Mobile, I'm screwed until release. I can't preorder through the Apple upgrade program and don't want to sign up with the T Mobile plans as the jump plan doesn't seem all that great.

That would make sense, I bought a tmo one for my daughter who is on Sprint, and while it says 3-4 weeks, I really was surprised that is was that easy.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe the tmo one works with sprint due to the intel chipset.

Couldn't access the store app until about 8.15 am (UK), which was probably because I was in Tenerife. Kind of gave up then, as there were none available to collect (I'm IUP). Checked back later in the day and managed to get a reservation for (by) the 9th of December, which feels ridiculous. Will attempt to get one sooner by checking stock daily (managed to get a 7+ a week after launch last year). So we'll see. Can't bring myself to queue up on launch day, I'm far too old.

The jump plan I believe is just like every other upgrade plan. Either take it for the full term for an interest free installment loan, or replace the phone after 12 months. You get half the value of the line on trade in which is a little better than the hassle free sites will give you (Gazelle, etc) and a bit worse than a private sale will net you.

Looks like all of the T-Mobile “SIM free alternative” punks canceled their orders!! Got bumped up to launch day!!

Mine has shipped from Verizon via Fed Ex. It’s being held until the 3rd. Anyway, has anyone has any luck before trying to pick up the item at the local Fed Ex distribution center on launch day before? I have a flight that leaves at 1:30 pm on Friday, and I really doubt fed ex is going to deliver it to my door before noon. It would be really awesome if could just go and pick it up myself that morning. I don’t see an option for “hold for pickup” just yet on Fed Ex tracking.

Mine still shows as processing on Verizon, even though I was already charged for it. Reps told me it’s still scheduled for the 3rd, but I’m getting really nervous about the whole thing

yeah you are not getting it on the 2nd. sorry. 😜

Mine almost always overnights from the inbound facility.
Actually I was just dumb. The order I was looking at was for my box to ship the old phone in :(

Still, I have a Nov. 3 release date.

I pre-ordered via AT&T and I was wondering if anyone’s status has changed (Nov. 3rd estimate)? Mine states “preparing to ship”.

Got destroyed in Australia The second the store was up for me it was already at 2-3 weeks shipping then it probably took less than a minute to actually get to the "Order Now" page and it was already at 4-5 weeks.
Long story short, not getting it for quite a while.

Anyone got some case/accessory recommendations? My go to case manufacture is Spigen, haven’t seen their offerings yet and I’m will to try something new.

Also, any fast charge cable recommendations other than Apple’s offerings?

mine says preparing to ship, but already has scans at two different locations in China.

Go to UPS and enter your order number minus the last two characters in the "By Reference" area. If your phone is shipping UPS it should show up.

Pre-ordered last night at an ATT store and got $100 worth of stuff with my purchase (case, screen protector, wireless chargers). My delivery estimate is beginning of December. Glad most of today's "first-day reviews" are all pretty positive. Really looking forward to this one.

Asked on fb and they said it does. Picked it up as it looks a lot sleeker than the plastic back, tpu side, that I originally ordered

I have always gone white on the iPhone but this time i went with gray.

The entire face being black made the white one look odd to me.

The chrome looks like it will end up like an iPod, scratched as hell with any slight touch

I’m having my phone held at the UPS center and cannot wait to pick it up tomorrow. My two cases came in and it feels like a baby iPhone compared to holding my 7 plus.

Looks like I got my shipping updated! Placed my order on the 27th but then had issues with updating my payment info. But I got this email this morning, super excited!

Man I got curved so bad.
Canada Post says it shipped at the same time as everyone else's, but I'm like the only one to get it delivered on 11/6.
It's in my city right now too :(

If I write a note to ups saying to leave the package inside the backyard, will they do it without a signature?

I’ve left a note letting them know to leave a package at the porch before, just be sure to leave signature and tracking # & date on the note!
