    After finding it in my support profile, I decided to try the UPS track by reference trick. I searched my phone number as the reference number (Example: XXXXXXXXXX no hyphens), and it worked!

    I noticed with mine, it looks like the serial number is a different format. I've tried running it through those "serial number decoders", but they don't give me any info. Kind of interesting, but frustrating. I want to know my build week!

    Mine doesn't show shipped. I assume it's stateside but it does show up in my support profile.

    They often do ship early but the shipping company will hold them for delivery on Friday. Per apples terms with them.

    Just use the track by reference tool and type your mobile number and fill out the required fields

    Nothing for me. Not on support profile yet and no luck tracking by phone number.

    Order status still shows processing and October 4-10 ship date.

    My UPS is setup so they will email me once a shipper is created, this goes for any retailer not just Apple.

    Interesting, Apple ships iPhone orders from the website directly from the factories in China to customers? Naively I thought they might ship them to the US, then on ship to customers.

    I have a Sept 23-27 (hoping for an early shipment for release day, which did happen for me one year), but I did find a shipment from Shanghai. But I think that's my watch, which is scheduled for 9-16. So, good news and bad news for me.

    Same here. As soon as UPS receives notice to send me something they send an email letting me know.

    I think it's just the luck of the draw. There are a lot of phones stateside getting ready to go to Apple's stores and to carrier shipping facilities and to Apple's main distribution centers. The ones that come from China are just printed with shipping labels and put in bulk containers. It's not like they ship them individually from China as that makes no sense.

    it will show as Shipped once the pallet is scanned in China and placed on the plane. From the shipping information time stamp follow the plane on flightaware iphone tracker. Usually to Anchorage and then to Louisville (if in the east, not sure about west coast) then to your nearest hub.

    It's a mixture, but it's typically more efficient to just ship directly from the factory. Gets to the customer faster. They do ship to carriers who then ship from the US to customers. But those of us who preordered from Apple directly will most likely get packages directly from China.
