Mine's coming with DPD (direct from Apple) today at "between 15:42 and 16:42". Ah, the joys of living in a town 20 miles away.

They usually come around 10-12 in the morning for me...must be a busy day!

Trying to collect at CPW is painful. Not a big queue but everyone is taking ages. One woman was just spending 10 minutes moaning why her delivery hadn’t arrived yet. Staff told her they’d call her as soon as it turns up but she kept going on. Hey CPW, you have other customers waiting

Now it’s run into my standup time so I’m doing that on the phone outside and will have to go back into the shop later :/

Stand up time? Scrum? Agile extremism? ;)

How long is the queue for non reservations? Do you think they will be enough stock for everybody at Covent Garden?

I'm planning to visit there by lunchtime

It’s hard to gauge to be honest! The other queues are out of my view now. Worth a try though, if you are close.

My DPD app (and web) still showing mine at depot with delivery between 06.00 and 22.00. Were no options to upgrade delivery yesterday and got busy day and afternoon at work so as long here by 5.30pm I'll be happy though between 12 and 2 would be great. Thankfully got 24 hour reception for deliveries here anyway.

Finally got my time slot from DPD for delivery. Dispatched from Enfield depot time slot 02:24-03:24 and I'm drop number 102!

That's a lot of drop offs to get to me, come on Chris please get shifting it's coming to my work address and I finish/the office closes at 4pm.

I was drop 150 for UKMail (for AW s3 on 27/9) and had by 3pm so I think you'll be okay. The numbers trickled away on the app quite quickly which made me think some were for multiple parcels. I like to think they want to finish sharp on Fridays so wont spare the horses!

Just a shout out to my brothers and sisters in the 13-20 club - hard day for us all today.. Lets try and stay strong!

I know... hard to stay strong though, almost had one from John Lewis but it got away! Back to waiting in the 13-20 Nov club.

I haven't been this disappointed with Apple since my iPad 3rd gen stopped working randomly and I drove 25 miles to get it repaired, only to be told to come back tomorrow for a replacement and the replacement was broken too. 150 miles it took in total to get the thing replaced!

Actually, tell a lie, there's also the time I spent over £3k on a custom-build iMac which was also faulty, then replaced with another faulty machine and eventually I settled with a third machine which is ok in most weather, but in the summer it get a little warm and it gets image persistence issues on the display!

Oh Apple.
