    So, I have chatted with Apple Support a few times over the past couple of days about various issues I've been having with my new iPhone SE and I eventually ended up scheduling to send the phone in for repair. I dropped it off at the UPS store this morning, but a bit later in the day I got this a strange and unexpected shipping notification.

    It seems to be coming from Apple itself, and the strangest part is that it's being overnighted. Anybody have any thoughts on what this could possibly be? I know it is coming tomorrow, whatever it is, but I just can't help but ask.

    I haven't ordered anything from Apple themselves.

    Hmm... at 1 pound it could be a replacement phone. They may have decided it would be easier for all parties to just replace your phone rather than repair it.

    Looks like a phising email. Do not click "Preparing for delivery", or send any data.

    A simple query on FedEx's site shows it to be real:

    https://www.fedex.com/apps/fedextrack/?tracknumbers=438504086341

    It's still on the vehicle for delivery. This reminds me of the P-P-P-PowerBook thread of years past.

    Glad it is real. I get all sorts of "delivery notice" fake emails, some even try to appear from apple asking to reset Apple ID, etc. I usually can check the sender though.

    It was a new iPhone SE. He sent his in for repair, but Apple doesn't repair. They replace.

    Obviously it was a trap all along, hence the silence. The OP's brainwaves have now been stolen, and added to The Collective.

    I'm never clicking a Fedex link ever again.
