TL;DR FOR THE LAZY: Order an Apple Watch Sport 42mm w/ Blue Band if you're a "developer", paid subscription or not. You'll probably get it shipped by the 28th. If you can't wait any longer, I recently spoke to Apple Developer Executive Relations and they gave me more exciting news. I know - hilarious, this seems to be a trend lately. If you're a registered developer, you can order a 42mm Silver Aluminum Case with Blue Sport Band before April 27th, 5:00 PM local time and the watch will ship on or before April 28th. The interesting bit that most don't know - A paid membership is not required. So if you have ever been involved in the developer program and are able to sign in with your Apple ID at the developer Member Center, the offer applies to you. He also told me that this is why some of the blue sport orders are shipping early, despite the fact they were ordered so recently. It's actually because they were ordered recently. When someone orders this model from now until the 27th, the Apple Online Store checks to see if the Apple ID the order is under is associated with a Developer ID. So these expedited shipping reports are "coming from people who are unaware that the free developer program they enrolled in provides them access", the executive told me. He also said the June shipping date for this model doesn't apply to those this offer applies to, despite it still listing "June" as the delivery estimate on the completed order. He further explained that the registration for the expedited order simply signed the developer up on the email list. This "winning" notification email was sent out to everyone who had registered. He went on to say that, currently, registration IS NOT REQUIRED to receive expedited shipping. They cut off registration to avoid disappointment if they couldn't meet demand, but they are still effectively meeting demand for this offer. Haha, lottery. I just placed my order this morning, am not a paid developer, but am enrolled in the developer program. My watch is now preparing for shipment. Chime in for further validation! Are you a subscription-less developer that's ordered a blue sport and received next day turnaround shipping?
