On the My Choice app, click on the item you’re tracking, then scroll down. In the settings, you should see the shipment release option.

EDIT: sorry, had to delete the image. I just realized it had all my info still showing! :confused: I'll edit it and reattach it.

Mine is showing a sign now button. Are you signed into UPS My Choice?
I am. Where are you seeing the sign now button?

Update: no, doesn’t seem like i can pre-sign because apple specifies adult signature required.

In every prior year you could pre-sign on apple’s website by printing a form and sticking it on your door, but this year there doesn‘t appear to be such an option

I’m not seeing any option to pre-sign either. Not from UPS Mychoice and not from Apple order status. My Apple Watch 5 did not require a signature, just my iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Very frustrating. I have a feeling they’re going to have a lot of undelivered iPhones this year. If I had known they were going to do this, I would have shipped it to my girlfriend’s work.

Mine shows this but I'll be home so I don't dare click it to try.

I would. That way, the 5 minutes you’re in the bathroom or on the other side of the house, you won’t miss the delivery.

I signed for both of ours, however I click on the tracking links now and it doesn't show that I pre-signed. I wonder if UPS removed the pre-sign feature for these this morning?

In the past, I have just taped a note to my door that said "ups, please leave package at door" and signed it, and included the tracking number. They always left it.

If I go to "My Delivery Planner" it does show that I signed for it though. Weird.

That MIGHT work because it’s not direct signature required. I found the old form Apple used for UPS last year and I’m going to use that for good measure.

I'd rather get my stuff late than never (stolen).
I live in a nice suburb and have a Nest doorbell and cameras. I’ve never had anything stolen. I’d rather not drive to UPS in rush hour traffic and stand in line for 30 minutes to pick up something that should have been waiting for me when I got home.

You guys picking it up a a UPS hub, how's your wait? I did this once but it was pure chaos. Like 50 people waiting and the UPS employees were very slow and grumpy and also seemed annoyed at all of us. Maybe it's because I live in such a populated area?

I have never seen a short wait at either UPS or Fedex.

Geez. It is super quick and easy at mine. I am usually the only one there for an iPhone. I have been doing this for years and each year there are about 8 people there waiting when I arrive. All of them are there to either drop off a package or pick one up. Never a phone. Just me. I am in and out by 8:15.

Sweet. This way the driver or someone following the driver or someone cruising the neighborhood can take your phones and you have zero repercussions!!! The thieves appreciate your participation.

So mine of course is also arriving Friday (20th) & I thought I was all set, since my dad is retired. Figured he'd be home. However, he's gone to bed after informing me he'll be leaving here at noon, to go visit some family. I'll be at work until 1 and then intend to see a movie. UPS tracking oddly enough specifies it'll be delivered at 3pm. Not by 3pm, at 3pm. I've left a note on the door before for a previous phone & it worked fine. I found a 2017 article on here for UPS pre-signature form, which I think I'll print out & use. Can't find that form anywhere on Apple or UPS site.

That said, a co-worker is also getting himself and his wife the new iPhone. He spent a lot of time at work today contacting UPS and Apple. Apple was able to email him a form to post on the door for pre-signatures.
