Apple's online store is now offering free next-day delivery for all in-stock items ordered by 3 p.m. local time on December 22 in the United States.


Apple normally offers free two-day delivery for most products, but it expands free next-day delivery to all in-stock items towards the end of every holiday shopping season to help customers purchase last-minute gifts in time for Christmas.

Most products and accessories purchased from an Apple retail store and/or received from Apple's online store between November 15 and December 25 of this year are eligible for return until January 8, 2018 in the United States.

Apple shared its 2017 gift guide in November, with ideas ranging from the Apple Watch and iPhone X to Sphero's R2-D2 and BB-9E drones.

Other gifts under $200 that an Apple fan is likely to appreciate include the Apple TV 4K, AirPods, BeatsX, an official Apple-branded iPhone case, Apple Watch bands, or simply an Apple Store or Apple Music gift card.

Good move, sometimes you have to give gifts some days before Christmas and having next day delivery is a great incentive to buy directly from Apple. This year I was able to get almost every present during black friday so I'm not in a rush, the only stuff I got from Apple was printed via their photo app and arrived just in time, fast as usual

Quite surprised I haven't see that ad campaign appear.

I think this is a nice advantage for someone who was shopping relatively late in the Holiday season where they can have the Product next day. Next day shipping costs somewhere around $25.00, which equals money saved.
