    My 12:11 email 128 Plus Gold already says preparing for shipment!

    My debit card was already charged.

    Is it just me? Or did it happen a lot faster this year than usual.

    I wonder when its gonna say shipped!!!!

    My bank did not authorise the payment initially. Now it's been authorised and payment has been taken but it still says processing items. I'm supposed to be getting delivery on the 16th.

    Its nothing to worry about, dont let these threads make you feel like something is wrong, everyone status change at different times, most people are still processing. Nothing to get all worked up about. This happens EVERY YEAR....

    What's the point? No matter how fast it is, it'll only be delivered on launch the soonest

    Im more curious how many peoples card was already charged.

    That was what surprised me because other years it happened like half a week later.

    Probably because I used Apple Pay

    Did you guys use apple pay or regular debit/credit transaction?

    I've been charged a few hours ago and my order is now preparing for dispatch. Slightly surprised, this normally happens just a few days before arrival. Maybe Apple need the cash

    Don't seem to have a phone assigned yet though, no new device on my support profile as yet...

    Literally, what else am I gonna do from now until the 16th to pass the time. Reverse engineering shipping trajectories via forum comments/data is all there is to do for the next few days. Can't really focus on anything else till next week anyway.

    we may get ours straight from china.. rather than middle hub which gets everything in and then manually ship to your house. since i have seen few cases back 6 plus they received straight from china

    You may well be right, being in the UK it'd be something new for me. I never had any Apple preorders come straight from China. They usually come from a central UPS hub. I hope this won't mean that it doesn't come with UPS...

    Don't think it makes a difference. It's easier to track if you're bored/excited
    But it leaves the risk of longer journey nearer to due date = potential delay. But I'm sure they've got it under control

    From China? Do you reckon? As much as I love stalking Pawel and John, I'm not sure DPD is a likely door to door carrier from China...
