    For people worrying about lack of movement on in-Store pick ups for tomorrow. You won’t get anything until this evening, I did this last year for the 7 and on the Thursday evening I got notice of pickup for the next day. Don’t worry.

    Sometimes the preparing for shipment status doesn’t update at all with iPhone pre-orders so don’t read into it.

    Secondly, I’ve just had a text from Royal Mail staring that my delivery from UTL is due today - I’m sure that’s distribution partner of Apple.

    This will be my first iPhone on launch day. I’ve always had the traditional 1-3 weeks after launch from Vodafone. Always hated seeing one on the tube before I got mine, haha, sad but true.

    I’ve ordered the new iPhone every year direct from Apple for launch day delivery and I am pretty sure I have always been able to track the package from China. Could be wrong but this is the first time I remember still being prep’d for shipment a day before.

    I’m not worried anyway, if Apple says tomorrow then I’m happy.

    Yes, but it could be as late as this evening before you're notified.

    Worried about dead pixels more than anything else. It’s a pretty fair guess now that U.K. stock has been in Hinckley for a while, so it’s also a pretty fair guess that the stock was from an initial batch... QC only gets better with time. If it has any I’ll just return it & stick with my 7. Not gonna get into a display lottery.
    Setting myself up for disappointment so I won’t be too disappointed if apple do disappoint me!

    Same here.

    They will probably get handed over to the couriers late afternoon early evening.

    one of the things making me hesitant to cancel my 2-3 week apple order, even if I get my CPW one tomorrow. I want to spend some time with a device to make sure its ok - if I need to return it I can't imagine Carphone will have immediate replacement stock..
