    The first iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 orders placed on the online Apple Store have shifted to "Preparing to Ship" ahead of an expected Friday, September 21 delivery date.

    Many orders in the United States, Australia, the UK, and and other countries have changed status and should be shipping out to customers in the near future. Apple Watch Series 4 and iPhone XS orders that have shifted to "Preparing for Shipment" can no longer be modified or canceled.

    Apple began accepting pre-orders for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max on Friday, September 14 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time. By the time a half hour had passed, many iPhone XS Max models had sold out and were no longer available for launch day delivery.

    As of today, new iPhone XS Max orders will not ship out until October, but some models are still available for in-store pickup on September 21 in select stores. Retail stores are also expected to have supplies available for walk-in purchases on launch day.

    Supplies of the smaller 5.8-inch iPhone XS are plentiful and that device remains available for Friday delivery.

    After orders began shipping, Apple's shipment status information may not be updated right away. Over the course of the next few days, some customers in the United States may be able to track their shipments using track by reference features on the UPS and FedEx websites.

    Update: This article has been updated to include the Apple Watch Series 4 as some orders in the United States recently began changing to "Preparing to Ship." Not all Apple Watch Series 4 orders have been updated at this time, while most iPhone XS and XS Max orders are in the preparing to ship phase.

    I’ll be getting the Xs Max to replace my X. I don’t need it but can’t resist the “want” obsession :D

    While I am looking forward to my Series 4, and that ‘new’ excitement, I am actually quite happy not to be part of the new iPhone ‘wait’ this year. I remember following on their tracker the progress of the UPS truck last year waiting for my X.

    Same here. I ordered at 12:05am and my XS Max says 9/28 to 10/5. I am hoping its like years past where the shipping estimate moves up closer to launch day.

    I just got curious if the battery is actually smaller in the Xs, since they only mentioned the minutes and they were not a huge upgrade. We had the same situation with 6s - they just told us the battery life should be more but in the end it really wasn't because the capacity was smaller.

    My iPhone Xs Max that I didn’t order is prepared to ship :-(. But my series 4 I did order is prepared.

    Going to wait until Jan/fed to upgrade from my X
