    Hey guys, I'm just really confused that although now Wednesday is almost over, my iPhone 6s on Apple.com still says "prepare for shipment" and it's scheduled for this Friday delivery. I haven't received any tracking number or anything. I remember last year I got notification that it got shipped and I could actually track it from China to Japan then the US. I live in California so the Pope doesn't affect my delivery. So what's up with this??

    This happens every year and is totally normal. You'll get your new iPhone on Friday. Listen to a veteran. :D

    Don't worry. Same here. In CA and I'm pretty sure it's in CA or close by so it will ship out sometime tomorrow morning.

    Your iPhone is already in transit but won't show as Shipped until the 24th. You may not receive a tracking number until as late as midnight.

    Go to ups.com tracking and select track by reference number. Enter your phone number with area code using no spaces or hyphens and you should get all your tracking info. My phone is in KY right now.

    I believe it is an agreement between UPS and Apple. Apple does not give out the tracking number until the last day or so. This prevents us from hammering the UPS tracking system.

    Exactly. I don't know about you but I've been hitting the UPS tracking system 100+ times per day LOL

    It helps. Not many know about the reference number but if you did, you knew days ahead. Apple is just now releasing this info the day before the delivery. Still keeps the "masses" from checking their tracking every ten minutes!

    I got everything shipped... Surprised they were shipped from China 19th and the 20th. I guess apple withheld the info until the day before. Different this year. Before you can track from China haha

    Been able to track the progress of my iPhone 6s on UPS.com (using my phone number) since the 19th. It's been sitting in Kentucky since last night. Apple just now emailed me to say it's shipped.

    I was able to track my phone's travels using both the UPS tracking and FlightAware. My phone has been in Louisville for two days. I just received notice from Apple overnight, that it had been shipped. Everything is perfectly fine for all the orders, unless you happen to be in Philly or NYC.
