I wonder if whoever is delivering them will manage to do so in time, as it is the last week before Christmas. If they use DPD or Yodel chances are we will not see them for some time...

Apple don't use Yodel fortunately. Personally DPD is my favourite courier! :p

I'm hoping for UKmail, delivered my iPhone 7 on a Monday following a Sunday dispatch (with an accurate time too!)
Good to know they dispatch on Sunday. Last thing I want is an increase to the delivery date :p

Hi all, I ordered mine at 14:50 on Tuesday. Delivery scheduled for Monday 19th December which is great as my birthday is on Tuesday 20 December!

My order is also still preparing for dispatch.

Now I don't think they will be dispatching tonight. First time I've ever known an Apple product ship on a Sunday, but it better do tomorrow!!!
[doublepost=1482019301][/doublepost]Well they officially did not ship on Saturday... :eek: Am very surprised. Guess it'll be Sunday at some point.

- They might be dispatched already even though it shows it's still preparing to dispatch (yes that happened in the past)

- Strikes starting on Monday for some areas, they better ship this before Monday.

They won't use Royal Mail so it should be alright.

Dispatch email at 7.28 this morning (Sunday), delivery tomorrow by UK Mail :)

Tracking not live yet but UK Mail have been pretty reliable in the past.

Dispatched by UK Mail too - but does anyone's tracking number not work?
[doublepost=1482050603][/doublepost]I had a feeling Apple had been stockpiling AirPods for a while and the delay was just slow production.

But:

God they were cutting it fine before Christmas!

How'd you get to see that?

As per other thread, dispatched this morning with UK Mail. Won't be able to use my beloved AirPods until Xmas day though as they're a present!
