    Sunday night(Monday morning in China) it will change to "shipped". Within 24 hours from then you will receive an email with tracking information from the company that will actually be delivering the package.

    Honestly, if you take a look at another forum going, some people's orders have been cancelled. Therefore, any order cancelled is given to the next person in line. It's possible that you could get it before Oct 5, but I wouldn't get my hopes up(hard not to, I know).

    It could take a few days, even, but rest assured that if Apple told you that it would be delivered on the 21st, it will be there on time.

    Mine has said it for at least 2 days! I ordered in the UK at 7:59 and used express checkout so I was finished by 8:00 so I must be in the first 300 people at least.

    Definitely. I took a little bit longer, I submitted at around 2:30 or so when it started at 2. I'm still receiving it on the 21st or sooner, but the status updates are taking forever. I'm seeing people already have a tracking number and it's shipped out.

    And why is that? I was told it depends on your carrier, which could be why it's taking a little while longer for the status to change.
