    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!

    Finally got mine today and it was an ordeal to say the least.

    Plane to Houston from Louisville was 4 hours late because of a mechanical failure so it didn't make it in time to get the trucks this morning. It finally hit my CC around 1130am. The tracking updated and said it was going to be delivered the next business day, Monday. So I called UPS and set up a will call for today. They said I'd receive a phone call to schedule pick up within an hour. I never received a phone call so I called them back and talked to an actual person this time. They again scheduled will call and said I'd receive a call within an hour. An hour and a half passed and so I decided to check my tracking again. This time it said the most recent track was in Louisville and my package was stuck due to a mechanical failure and they would reschedule delivery. WTF?!?!?! So I called again and told them what the problem was. The person immediately transferred me to a supervisor. I told them the issue and they transferred me to someone higher than them. They called the CC and had someone there go out to the trailer and get the package and hold it for me. Took me 30 minutes on and off hold but I finally got it!!!! Girl checking me out knew exactly what it was too. She said I was like the first out of 50 or so people that work at the CC to get it. I'm backing up my 7+ now and about to transfer my data. Good luck everyone still waiting.

    Ahh I see, maybe they wanted to send a whole batch of them together so they would arrive at icheon all at the same time.

    It would be a real challenge for UPS67 to make it to Incheon by that time, since it will touch down in Louisville in a little over 4 hours... I could not make it back to Incheon in less than 9 hours, FYI...

    I hope so. Pretty worrying that it went from the location that everyone is having their phones sent out from to another place in China but we shall see.

    Not sure. It’s on FlightAware. Arrives in Louisville at 12:34AM EST. Departs Incheon at 9:48AM EST. Hope it makes it.

    Is this the normal travel graph for iPhone Xs?
    Mine is now in Incheon, Korea.

    Thanks.

    Glad to hear I got a Shanghai buddy! Hopefully we both get that 16th date or even sooner. I will try and update my progress, if any, when possible. Good luck!

    I suspect our phones will be on the next run of UPS Flight 85 from Shanghai to Anchorage, and then to Louisville. It will leave Shanghai on Sunday morning China Standard Time. We could see delivery a day early.

    This was my fear. I had the same story yesterday. I just cancelled my order and I'm going to pick one up locally when the stores get inventory again.

    The point of my statement, is based on previous pricing practice. Of course the consumer always pays the entire cost. Apple makes X% profit on tier 1 storage capacity, then X+% on tier 2, and X++% on the highest tier.

    For example, if there was a 128GB model, it would be $100 more than the 64GB model, and the 256GB would be $200 more. Traditionally. However this go around, it's $150 more. Splitting the cost is based on a hypothetical existence of a 128 GB. Also you could say, tier 1 and tier 2 should only be $100 different, and therefor, since there's only two capacities this year, Apple is over charging us by $50. I get that, too.

    My expectation this year was to spend about $1100 for all of everything, including Apple Care+. But the storage capacity added $50, Apple Care + added $60, and finally, the phone itself was $100 more, to my anticipated expenses.

    Yes we are paying, close to $210 on top of what I traditionally anticipated. But it could have been worse, given three storage capacities, hence splitting the cost. Apple chose $150 instead of $200, which is a split.
