    Does it mean I should now wait for the new iPhone to deliver to my house?
    Is there any possibility that things might go wrong? I think I got my Bill Address wrong...
    Thank you guys!

    It means that the phone has not shipped but the order is in line with everyone else.

    It means exactly what it sounds like lol. If you think you made an error I'd give Apple a call to see if they can update the information.

    ----------

    Pretty confirmed at that point, unless there was a payment issue etc.

    The process goes like this:
    • Processing Items
    • Preparing for shipment
    • Shipped

    This may blow your mind, but if you scroll down a little bit Apple has a list of the possible order statuses and what each of them mean, next to a list of frequently asked questions.

    It's confirmed unless something goes wrong. They have checked your eligibility for upgrades, checked your credit card (I think), checked the available stock for the item you requested for delivery on the day specified. Of course there are always things that can go wrong: shipping mixups, your credit card is expired or declined when they go to charge it, it arrives damaged, or whatever, but you are as good to go as you can be at this point.

    If you go to the order page, you have have it send alerts for email and text messages. The tracking number will be available when it ships (they are probably sitting on a tarmac or warehouse in Kentucky right now, or even China). When I ordered my 4S it said was just leaving China the night before it was due to arrive in the US, then it got stuck in Hong Kong for a long time, I didn't think there was any way it was going to make it here, but it did (last delivery of the day though).

    would love to sign up for text notifications, but the 'We're sorry something went wrong' message is all I've seen all day.

    I ordered this morning at about 7am EST - my card was authorized for $1 at that point, then a about 11:30am Apple emailed me to say my card had been declined - and then Amex emailed me to say they had spotted suspicious activity on my card and I just had to check the box. I then had to (eventually after about 40 mins of trying to get my order status back up) re-attempt the payment on Apples website and then the full amount of the handset showed up on my Amex card online.

    The apple store app supports notifications for change in order status.

    I was charged $1, too. What does it mean? Why it's only $1?
