Very sorry for you - hopefully it arrives earlier than that!did you order from apple? I've ordered mine from Digitec @14:00 and it got pushed back to the 5th October 😭
As for me - yes, I ordered from Apple, on the iPhone via the app. I was "in" within a couple minutes after 14:00 and had my order sent within seconds and confirmed for Friday 22nd. So far, the app has been the most reliable choice for me.
