My daughter just received a delivery date of 11/13 she was in the 17-24 window. In the past it has been 2 days after you received the shipping notice . Is this just a glitch or is Apple sending shipping notices before the phone is even manufactured?
I understand she would get it by that date it’s just strange that in 8 years I don’t remember them sending shipping notice out that far ahead. Also her card has been charged for 5 days which is also unusual as they normally charge the card 24 hours or less of shipment.
I just received a shipping confirmation that three of the four that I ordered will be delivered tomorrow, 11/8. I was originally given a delivery date of 11/22, so 15 days sooner was a nice surprise. All three are space grey, 64GB. Unfortunately, the fourth phone, which is the one I ordered for myself (space grey 256GB), is still "awaiting inventory." I was given a 12/1 date for that one, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it also ships 15 days earlier than expected.
