    Well the black 128gb XR that I ordered has shipped (though I didn't get a shipping notice from Apple) However, the UPS App shows that it shipped from ZhengZhou, CN. I've already requested to pick it up at the UPS CS Center Friday morning when they open. Hopefully there are no shipping snafu's like some had with the XS and Max.

    Has anyone else used the UPS app to see if their XR has shipped? You have to be registered with USP My Choice in order for this to show up in your app.

    The UPS app says mine has shipped from ZhengZhou, CN also. Is there any chance they might arrive earlier than Friday?

    No UPS is instructed to hold them until the release day. There were some on the XS and Max that the phone made it to their UPS CS Center the day before release day, but they never left the station until the next day. I personally hate being stuck at home waiting all day for God knows whatever time they show up so I have mine held at the station. I can pick it up 9 AM when they open.

    Not a chance. Apple has specially set restriction on them that they cannot deliver launch day product early. So you will have to wait till Friday. What likely will happen is that it will sit in Kentucky till Thursday and then start moving them to the destination Thursday evening.

    Will I be able to get the package from UPS Store on delivery date or will it delay? I don't see CC as option when choosing pick up site

    Will cause delay for UPS store. Needs to go in a hub/CC for same day delivery. Requested mine to be held @ UPS CC. I’ve been doing this every iPhone launch. Don’t want to wait for delivery.

    Typically the system will tell you the date change when you redirect it to the UPS Store, However some have had luck with them still being able to get it on the same day. It's a hit or miss.

    Coral 256GB that I ordered showed up yesterday on my UPS.

    Won't get overly concerned about shipping. XS didn't get into my city until noon launch day and I still had it in hand that day.

    How you guys find CC through app and online? All I got are access points and UPS stores. I tried changing the address to near CC but it came up empty. I already signed up for MyChoice long time ago. Thanks

    I just want to reiterate this. My wife's 7+ didn't land at the nearest airport (an hour from our house) until 10 AM on launch day. They got it off the plane, to the local (45 minutes from airport) distribution center, loaded on to a delivery vehicle, and dropped off to our house by 4:00 PM that day. They'll make it happen even if it seems like it's going to be late.

    Still in processing status for me. Apparently my credit card has fraud alert so they had to call me Friday morning to confirm my identity, wonder if that pushed back my order in terms of place.

    I think it's still in processing for everyone. Those who have tracking information got it from UPS, not Apple or their provider or whoever else they bought it from.

    Aww man... Yeah that is not a good story at all. It's bit me in the butt like that a couple of times over work. I'd take off, but something urgent would happen at one my units and I'd have to leave. I'd rush to get back only the find they attempted delivery. Then call, they said they would try again, but didn't and then I said I'd go to the station, but the driver got back after the CC closed so they told me they could hold it or he would try to deliver again. So, I had them hold it and got there soon as the door opened. They lady working the counter was so funny. She said "Did you stay here all night". I was like YEP! LOL

    I see the iPhone XR has departed ZhingZhou. If it's like my iPhone XS Max, it will go to Anchorage AK next and then right into Louisville, KY.

    Hm. Mine is still "preparing to ship"

    Ordered minutes after pre-order launch, and still "Arrives Fri Oct 26"

    Anyone else?
    Hope it makes it Friday!

    Per UPS My Choice - Departed Anchorage at 12:10am this morning and likely headed to Louisville. Apple order shows 'preparing for shipment' and no shipment notification email received from Apple yet. I would suspect this will happen when it reaches the Louisville distribution point or sometime soon.

    Apple has run this supply chain so many times that if you have a confirmation for Friday your only problem would likely be not being home to sign for it. I believe once you have shipment notice from Apple you can pre-sign electronically with your order number, but if it is confirmed delivered and is stolen you may be on your own.

    To each his/her own... hopefully we all be satisfied with the XR and much of what you read on here is not a big deal. I am moving from a iPhone 7 so I am expecting the screen to be more than adequate. I wanted more than 64GB so the XS was not worth the $350 investment for what you get....

    On Apple.com it will still say preparing to ship and arrives october 26. However, on UPS My Choice, it will show the most updated location. Mine says the same thing on Apple, but UPS shows it left Anchorage this morning.
