The good news is that my iPhone shipped yesterday (Saturday) and is scheduled for delivery by 9/21! According to the tracking the phone will be in transit for 3 days. Every iPhone I've ever gotten during launch was shipped to me over night. Since when did apple start shipping iPhones via 2-3 day? Edit// for what it is worth, and not surprisingly, my iPhone is shipping from China. Even then it's always been overnight shipping. --- Post Merged, Sep 18, 2016 --- I tried looking at the UPS website description for their shipping methods. Still confused, ha.
