    Looking back a bunch of pages it really does seem like I am the only one who has seen their phone be in Shanghai. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing but leaning towards bad.

    Um, more like Apple passed the costs and more straight onto us. The only splitting Apple is doing are those profits amongst the executives. I would hardly consider being charged $1,149 for a phone as being given a bone by them

    My phone was supposed to deliver today but has had setbacks. It's now stuck in limbo in KY with no clear delivery date anymore. For some reason it went from Alaska to Kentucky but I'm in California. So bizarre.

    Just a heads up, the phone sitting on the tarmac, or in a pallet has nothing to do with Apple. They paid for UPS Worldwide Expedited, which is 4-5 business days, please note UPS Business Days are Monday to Friday, so that if your phone, like mine shipped on 11/6 a monday, it is expected to arrive on a Friday, as it ended up doing, but in the interim it sat on a tarmac for two days in Incheon/Zhengzhou, and waited for multiple rounds of customs review. UPS has a plan for everything, which is why once it leaves Incheon, it will get to you very quickly because all the hurdles are gone.

    Apple could have paid for UPS Worldwide Express which is 1-2 business days, but the cost is about 4x higher, even with their discount(s), which are sure to be astronomical.

    Waiting does indeed suck

    If I am not mistaken, by reading these threads obsessively, this is the route that most of the phones takes. From KY they get sent to whatever states they are ending up in. So AK to KY is the norm regardless of where u live.

    Scheduled delivery estimate: 17/Nov -> 24/Nov

    This is Apple throwing you a bone...the shipper is the only one that can ask for Saturday Delivery and UPS charges an additional $40 bucks*probably have a discounted rate, but Apple had to reach out to them...

    Louisville is the UPS Superhub. Everything routes through Louisville to be sorted to the destination hub. Hopefully you will receive tomorrow.

    I called apple to try and convert my online order to a store pickup. Lady was nice but we ended up loosing my order all together. She said she thought she had it on hold. Fun stuff.

    Anyone know what time the apple stores update inventory?

    welcome to my current hell, friend.

    the general concensus on this forum is that the store updates at midnight and 6am-ish in the mornings.

    i did the same as you - had an online order, but i purposely cancelled it yesterday. now im on the hunt for a phone myself.

    good luck and use istocknow.com to babysit inventory.

    I'm hoping any Apple store in the northern 2/3rds of Ohio restock. I have 5 to pick from in a 1.5 hour distance.

    I got a 64 gig by mistake(delivered today). I can't find a 256 to save my life. I actually had one in my cart 2 days ago(Summit Mall Store) by the time I hit order I got an error message that it was't available. I'm in Ohio too.

    Whelp, mine has arrived! Pretty impressed at how fast UPS got the phone from Korea to Manhattan once it cleared customs. Best of luck to everyone still waiting!

    I am in the Nov 17-24 group, and My card got charged today around noon and shortly afterwards I see that my iPhone X has moved from Order In Process to Preparing for Shipment. I got my Apple case this morning. So things are looking up. Maybe I can get it early or at least by Nov 17.

    Not sure if there is anymore outbound planes going out of Korea. Hopefully it's hopped on one at the moment. Does say delivery date is unavailable. Was set to deliver nov 14 earlier.

    One of mine is in the same group. I wouldn't be surprised if it shows up on Monday or Tuesday.

    Seems like yours is coming out of the older factory that's all. Zhengzhou is the newer factory which is producing at a higher rate than the shanghai one. Since foxxconn is in zhengzhou.

    Thats some good news! I had lost hope after seeing my phone sit in Incheon for over 2.5 days. UPS still showing Nov 14 delivery to Vancouver.

    Thanks for the reply! Makes me feel a bit better however my phone actually left Zhengzhou and arrived in Shanghai about an hour later. So I am pretty confused but just hoping I get it sometime next week!
