Any chance my 2-3 weeks could change to Nov 3?

My order was placed at 8:13am GMT, I think I just missed out on Nov 3 delivery.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen in previous years people who were close to launch day pick ups sometimes change nearer the time as stock is on the cautious side.

Anyone had an experiences like this over previous years?

Depends who you placed your order through. If it's Apple, it's possible. They sometimes under promise and over deliver.

Maybe if enough people ahead of you cancel their preorders? If cancellation is possible.

I'm in the 2-3 week camp too. I don't know about actual launch day, but it's very common for Apple to under-promise on shipping times, especially with these launches; there's a good chance the first batch of 2-3 week orders come a bit sooner than that.

It is possible, but that appears to be the third wave, with wave two on the 10th, so maybe tough to move that far up.

It's possible, they will obviously be manufacturing lots of iPhone X's between today and Nov 3rd, so maybe they can change your delivery to an earlier date.

The 2-3 week delay came up around 12:08am PST from what I remember (I wanted to check how fast it would be delayed). There's always a possibility it could be bumped up or delivered earlier, though it may not reflect in the estimate.

I'm in the same boat... last year I had to wait for my Jet Black after release date... was really hoping to get it on launch date this year, but NO. The app store just had to fail on me.... I'm in the 11/17-11/24 group. Hoping for the best.

changing from 2-3 wks shipping to launch day is kinda slim. mine is set for 1-2 wks and i doubt it'll be launch day delivery. if anything, it'll might be cut down by half the backorder wait time.
