    I am getting an early delivery date, why? I clicked on the /checkmyorder/ link in the email confirmation. Typing this on my phone, copied and pasted verbatim what I see (image doesn't load for me, either):

    Saturday delivery may not be available in your area so Apple is hooking you up instead of pissing you off by making you wait until Monday.

    I hadn't thought of that. Though it bothers me because I planned to take off from work on the 25th to wait out for the delivery. I still have to work the 24th and can't guarantee I'll be home xD

    Looks like it says ships on September 24, so I guess it would be delivered on September 25?

    Isn't the 25th a Friday in the USA?

    The 25th is a Friday. The phones arrive on launch day, which is that Friday, and are shipped a day or two or three before that.

    Yep, it's the shipping date you got there. Mine is showing delivery date, don't know why the difference.

    For me I get free next day so. Ships 24th, arrives 25th.

    99.99% of time...no one gets before the release date of 9/25

    For most, the shipping will occur far enough in advance for you to take deliver on the date mentioned. In some cases, like mine, I see the ship date cause its 1 day shipping.

    Been through them all and you are right there have been exceptions, but Apple has honed this process so I would not expect early delivery.
