    Just for fun, looking at the time stamp in the X-Received email header, exactly when did Apple email your confirmation?

    Mine was: Fri, 10 Apr 2015 00:02:34 -0700 (PDT)

    :01, but I am sure lots of people had that. Ended up canceling that order. So next order was :03.

    That's very fast, considering that the app didn't even seem to come online until around 12:01 for me. But we need the exact time with seconds from the detailed header of the email for this experiment to work.

    That's with trying apple pay twice and it showing incorrect billing address even though it was correct. Finally had to do other payment method that was luckily already filled. 42 SS Milanese Loop.

    I'm talking about looking at the email headers and checking the actual time Apple's mail server sent the message, down to the second.. not the time that you see in your inbox.

    Mail headers and when you received the email are not an indication of when Apple accepted your order as there are other variables at play such as applications, databases and various mail servers.

    From the header: Fri, 10 Apr 2015 00:03:33 -0700 (PDT)

    I kept force restarting the app every few seconds starting at 3am ET and it finally loaded, so I selected my favorite and checked out with Apple Pay and got the earliest possible ship date.

    We never got down to the mail server time stamp which is ridiculous but just for fun. :p

    Yes but this is the best we have to go by.

    All these Standard time zones—did all of you folks forget to set your clocks forward last month, or what?

    On the other hand, it's impressive that you Standard-zone orderers got the advantageous shipping dates you did, given that you were logging on more than an hour after preordering went live....

    :D
