    I can't find where it says delivered on the 21st. I am a little concerned that they really are going to SHIP on the 21st. I am probably just paranoid though.

    So I (we) will be able to go into our respective store and walk out with one on the 21st.

    Correct?

    it says they will DELIVER, not SHIP on the 21. apple has always been good about getting you the preorder on the release date

    I'm not trying to make this an argument. I just want to know where it says delivered? In the past, it has specifically said delivered. Just trying to get my iphone as soon as possible.

    Where does it say they will deliver on Sep 21?

    ----------

    Walking IN to the store will be the tricky part, since there will be 100s of people waiting in line overnight. And the line moves excruciatingly slow, with activations, etc.

    I have a feeling the stores will be properly stocked this time around. If you remember the new iPad launch, it was really easy to walk in somewhere and get one.

    Theres always this discussion about ship/deliver and every time I've got mine on launch day. Heck, I got the iPad 1 a day early! THAT was a good day, I remember browsing the net on it while all the news channels were showing epic queues for it the day after on the Friday morning :)

    Shipped in all countries.. Delivered in US?

    I'm glad we have two days to figure this out before ordering. Maybe they just overlooked it. OR maybe they wanted to say shipped for all those countries, but in the US it will be delivered. That is my guess!

    Midnight Pacific time in the past, but no one really got in for like 45 minutes.

    Ah, then yes, that's 0200 for me. :D

    And the trick, I believe, was to use the Apple Store app.

    I'm guessing that the specific conformation you're looking for will be provided on the 14th when they actually open preorders.
