    I know it may sound silly but I figured I'd ask...I don't have a printer and didn't have access to one today so I wrote out the pre-sign release word for word and am going to leave it on my door tomorrow. I assume it won't be an issue, but you know what they say about assuming... Anyone ever do this in the past?

    Just authorize the release on the tracking page.

    I haven't done it for an Apple product, but I've done it many times for packages from other companies. UPS has never given me any trouble with it.

    I'm really quite glad it's coming UPS - they seem to honor presigns whereas FedEx never does.

    I've signed for a iPad Air 2 recently with a sticky note, worked fine.

    I think it has to do with the driver,The reason I say this is because one time I left a sticky note and the driver left the package and on UPS it had that it was signed by the name I left on the sticky note. Then another time I needed to sign for something I left the sticky note,Got home and had a "Sorry we missed you" note from UPS and on that note it said something along the lines that a person must sign for the package and a signature on a paper would not be accepted. Moral of the story just sign the waiver on the Apple page to waive signature.

    I work for UPS and can confirm that a hand written note will not be accepted. You MUST have the Apple Form printed out and signed. There is absolutely no exception for Apple Deliveries.

    Even if it's word for word and signed eh? Okay, thanks. Better make alternative plans.

    It has to be the printed page from the website. Please trust me on this. I would hate for the driver to laugh at your paper and walk away without delivery.

    Not a choice with the apple watch. I think this is the first package I have had like that. I wonder if they would even take a note.
