    Someone else had recommended asking for expedited shipping and I had been on the phone on hold for hours waiting while doing some work. Finally got through to someone and she was awesome. Her name was Rhonda. She not only updated me and my brothers phones with expedited shipping but she did it free of charge because I had to wait so long!! I've attached pictures below :))

    You do realize that you could still get the phone on the 24th?

    Doesn't matter. I'm happy because it was originally Sept 26- Oct 3rd. And it was changed free of charge :).

    Happens every year. Everybody panics and then almost everybody who has October ship dates gets it on release day. I have always gotten mine on release day.

    Because you "had to wait so long"? How long have you waited? Nice first world problem you got there!

    Would love for you to be right, but you appear to be in the 4th wave. Don't even think the 26-Oct 3 are getting release day. But I am rooting for you.

    Like Ironman said this happens every time. Happened to me with the 6 plus as well. For the 7 plus i ordered 2 minutes before midnight and got an october date. Im confident it'll show up on launch day.

    Yea except it doesn't seem normal when you order 40 seconds after the page goes live n still get a delay. Maybe this time it was delayed for jet black initially

    Ok. I had a mid October ship date last year too. Got my phone on release day in September, year before that as well.
    --- Post Merged, Sep 10, 2016 ---
    Happens every year. Do we need to say that a million more times for you? Ship dates are all over the place and make no sense based on when peoples orders are placed. It is fun to play with everyone though (c:=

    Mid October last year was a week earlier then this year as the phone is releasing a week earlier this year. I still hope you're correct though.

    I wonder if it was my post that you saw the recommendation to call Apple. Welcome to the Sept 17-24th club:)

    For the 6+ I had two weeks after launch ship date, got it about 10 days after launch. My others have all had launch date, and received launch date.

    That sucks. I had 3 weeks after launch and got it on launch. Same as the year before and the year before that, and so on and so on
