    It's not in customs...there's two scans after that. It's still in Zhengzhou - likely in a staging area at the airport - awaiting enough skids to justify a flight.

    Yes it's in customs. What's interesting is generally anything coming from China clears US Customs in Anchorage, AK. I would call and be sure your package did not accidentally end up in the wrong place, because that seems odd to me. I've never actually seen an Apple shipment scanned US bound held for Customs in China (in the rare instance we do have an issue and look at an Apple shipment) - this early in the iPhone shipments they almost always come together as a pure Apple shipment.

    I've spent 21 years at UPS in management of their international brokerage firm. We deal with Apple shipments a lot. =)

    Quite Possible as US President is now in China.

    I finally have it in my hands. It’s a less dramatic evolution than I expected, but it’s a jewel of a phone. It’ll take me a day to draw conclusions, but first impression is this is obviously the nicest phone ever made. That said, I can’t help but begin getting excited about the prospect of the iPhone X Plus next year, yet at the same time I have great fear of what I’m assuming will be a $1599 or $1699 iPhone. The fear isn’t so much the price, but the fact that I’d pay it without thought. Scary.
