    For those of you that already have their tracking numbers and their phones shipped, which delivery service do they have you on? I'm hoping mine gets sent via UPS, so I don't have to do a WFH day and just pick it up from the local facility. What seems to be the consensus here?

    Mine was shipped via UPS, pretty sure Apple only uses UPS for the USA, been pre-ordering for years

    I've been preordering for 4 years now and it's been 100% FedEx here in California. For MacBooks, iPhones, iPads, etc. UPS only is used for low value shipments like cases and accessories... at least for me.

    Yup, hence why I asked the question. When I was living in AZ, I would always end up with UPS for my preorders. Then again, I was never on MR before, so seeing this is pretty eye opening (though not surprising).

    Hmm that's weird, the iPhone shipments from the warehouse in China flys here via UPS planes, and eventually delivered by UPS. I guess it varies by state, I'm in Oregon and all my pre-order gets delivered by UPS and regular orders off Apple comes by FedEx most of the time.

    Well I think they use all carriers, because last year I tracked mine FedEx over from China.

    Southern Californian here and I always get my shipments from UPS. Must be regional!

    Well I'd hope FedEx isn't flying to Louisville... considering their hub is Memphis. LOL

    I sure hope this year mine is shipped UPS... it'd defy every year in the past ... but for the sake of ease of pickup, please be UPS

    Ordered from Verizon. Shipment is from Memphis via FedEx, which is about 45 minutes away. So, yeah, they're going to be holding it for a while.
