No. Once it is in preparing to ship stage, you cannot cancel. You can return it after it is delivered to you tho.

This is extremely annoying TBH. It can stay in “preparing to ship” for days. You should be able to cancel it up until the moment it ships.

My order for a 44MM Silver Aluminum watch with GPS + Cellular has just gone from preparing to ship to shipped. The label has been made, but UPS has not gotten it yet. It looks like the 25th or possibly sooner will be the date it will be delivered.

Hi, I ordered my new Apple Watch 6 SS as soon s it became available, deliver date September 25-29. I just found the same watch at my local Apple Store. Once it goes to preparing to ship, I can't cancel it. What would be the best and easiest way to return back to Apple?
Thanks, Jerry

Woke up this morning and checked my bank account and the Apple Watch charge is no longer there, it had been pending since Tuesday afternoon. I went to look up the order status on the Apple.com and it was still "Preparing to Ship". So for fun I went in and checked on the same watch for pick up at my local Apple Store and I am now picking the same watch up at the Apple Store today. Whenever I receive the other watch I will bring it to the Apple Store and get a refund. The delivery date on the watch ordered Tuesday is September 25-29.

Apple Watch Nike Series 6, GPS, 40mm Space Gray Aluminum Case with Blue Black/Bright Mango Nike Sport Band

Same thing happened to me. I ordered it again and will be picking it up in a few hours. When the one ordered Tuesday finally comes in I will just return it unopened to the Apple Store.

If you want it now, order it and pick it up at the local store, when the original order comes, just return it.

Did the same, I guess the 30 day return policy will apply

I ordered the 44 space grey aluminum from Best Buy for pick up tomorrow at the store - how has success been with that? Supposed to be ready for curbside tomorrow, but this is my first time using Best Buy with this.

Update: got the text from Best Buy last night that my order was ready for pick up today, so I’ll be heading that way after work 🙌🏻

Had eta of 9/28 - Oct 1 and Oct 5 - 8. Charges were pending for Wednesday, so maybe I was getting it sooner. I saw that two I ordered were available today for pick up at the store. Cost me $30 more in tax, but I sold my series 2 last night and I’m impatient. See you at 4pm today apple watches!
