The iPhone 14 Movement...

Once our orders move to process we should start seeing some movement to 'Preparing For Shipment' over the weekend. This usually happens Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon (PST time).

Once this happens you should be able to get details on your phone and let the tracking begin!

Here are some notes to help track orders:

If your phone status has changed to "Shipped", you can view the invoice on the Apple site.

That invoice has the serial number on it.

Go to, then pick the ORDERS page (the little "shopping bag" icon at the far right on the home page... go to your orders page). Now, log in, find your iPhone order... and click on Print All Invoices to see your shiny new iPhone serial number.

Link to track your iPhone via UPS:

Tracking | UPS - United States

Track one or multiple packages with UPS Tracking, use your tracking number to track the status of your package.

Detailed Tracking

Another way to find it, enter your phone number + zip:

Track your UPS shipments here using your reference number

If your phone number isnโ€™t working for UPS tracking, use your order number but subtract the last two numbers/letters. For example: Say your order number is: W123456789, you'd put in: W1234567 - make sure to use the tracking by reference feature

The Day Before iPhone Launch

UPS Aircrafts can be seen departing from Louisville Kentucky to all over the United States - Thursday, September 15th, 2022 at 04:11 PM (PDT)

Listen to the Live Air Traffic below: Anchorage, Alaska > Louisville, Kentucky.

When you see the time that your flight leaves China (make sure that the UPS or FedEx info is showing it per China time, or do the math), you can usually narrow it down

For those of you that are not familiar with doing this here's how you can check your order.

Go to UPS's website. Go to tracking. Go to track by reference number. Put the cell phone number associated with your order as the reference number. Put your ZIP Code. Put your country. Hit the track package button. If your phone has shipped it'll come up on UPS's website.

Our Main Goal is to hit the "Import Scan" from Louisville Kentucky. This is our last stopping point before we will say our final goodbyes until we all meet again next September 2023.

The story behind the famous "Import Scan" UPS: Long story short, This is a final approval scan that dictates your iPhone will arrive the next day, guaranteed!

According to UPS, The shipment has cleared import procedures in the receiving country.

Be Aware: Common Scans Include The Following:


Example: What our Tracking May Look Like?

This tracking below only applies to Las Vegas, Nevada. However, we will all be traveling together from (Zhengzhou, China to Lousiville, Kentucky, USA) until we see the "Import Scan" in Louisville, Kentucky. Keep in mind some of us may be left behind in China. It happens every year. (It happened to be last year and the year before). Hopefully, this won't be the case this year. After all, goes well, we will be separated to our final destination, and from there expect a final "Departure Scan" to hit your destination airport.
