    Does anyone here from Germany have a Sep 16 delivery date for their iPhone 7 or 7 Plus? I ordered my 128GB Black 7 Plus the moment the Store came online on Sep 9, but got 2-3 Weeks estimated delivery time.

    Has anyone preordered last years?
    Is it possible to hold the package in courier service facility to pick up by myself? Not sure if I will be at home in the morning 16/09 but need to get the phone before noon.
    How is it usually processed?
    Thanks!

    Exactly!! Ordered at 9:11AM on the website, got confirmation email at 9:13AM — still got 2-3 weeks :(

    Which model did you get?

    In Germany almost always UPS delivers launch day Apple products. If you're not home they'll leave a note in your mailbox and come back on the next working day, because you have to be present in person to sign for it. If you're not there then you can issue a "Vollmacht" or written authorization to a neighbor or family member to receive the package for you. If I'm not there I leave a note on the doorbell for UPS to deliver it to the person with the Vollmacht.

    Lucky! Can you look in your emails and tell me what time did you get your order confirmation from Apple? Many thanks :)

    Germany? No one I know in south Germany (about 7 people) had the Apple Store come up for them before 9:10AM, web or app... maybe some really lucky few! I myself hit refresh from 8:59 for no less than a hundred times :D

    Okay, I'm a little relieved to know I'm not alone in this. Thought I had a cache problem and got too late to place my order. Here's hoping their inventory improves this week and we do get a surprise on next Friday! :)

    Do you think so? Is my first time I order at the German Apple store and I don't know if we'll get our phones before the estimated date...

    Yes I'm speaking from recent experience. Last year the Stainless Steel Space Black Apple Watch sold off immediately after launch and had something like 5 - 8 weeks waiting time. I ordered it after returning an Aluminum model which I did not like, so I had no choice but to wait. To my surprise, within around 3 weeks I got an email saying that the shipping estimate has improved and that my Watch was preparing to ship! It arrived shortly after.
