Anyone else’s iPhone X order changed to preparing to dispatch? Mine has but surly it’s a tad early to be getting it ready for sending out on Thursday for Friday delivery

This is normal. Happened with my 8 plus but it arrived on the release day.

Cool - I’m not expecting it early. Just wondering if anyone’s had done the same, as it seems a tad early to change to this.

It's technically correct as it's being boxed and your postage label applied to it. Then it'll sit in the warehouse for a few days before being put on the van.

No
Mines still order in progress. For those of you who got the 8 delivered, did they give you a tracking number soon enough to follow it from China?

They should. I'll need one in order to set up pickup at the local UPS hub.

Happened last year with my 7 Plus. Tracked it from China to Alaska, to somewhere in the middle of the country and finally to my home state.

I would imagine the first iPhone X's would be coming from somewhere in states already but I could very well be wrong.

The first batch of 8 plus phones in the UK came from a location in the country

I guess in some places it's FEDEX and others UPS. Not sure which mine will be.
My last few years of iPhones have been UPS (I'm in MD). Picking up at the local UPS hub is such a hassle-saver. I love not having to sit around all day waiting for Buster Brown to get there.

The only relevant information that is important is "arrived at destination."
