This forum is for those who ordered online and scheduled for pickup at their local Apple Store (I don't mean reserve for pickup.) On 9/9, at 10:34am (EST.) I preordered an iPhone 7 128gb Matte Black (T-Mobile GSM Unlocked), and it is still in the "Processing" stage. This is my first time not getting my preorder shipped directly to me. I decided it would be easier and less of a hassle to pick it up, and it will be available for pickup on Sept. 16. For orders bought online and scheduled for pickup, should I still expect to see the "Preparing for Shipment" stage? Or will I just have to wait until the 15th-16th to see any movement in my order status? Will it tell me if the phone is shipping to the Apple Store? If so, would I be able to track it?
