iPhone 7 Plus Orders Begin Shipping to Customers

After quickly moving to the "Preparing for Shipment" stage on Friday, the first wave of iPhone 7 Plus shipments from Apple are now on their way to customers for delivery on Friday, September 16. Apple has not yet officially updated order statuses to "shipping," but a number of customers have found their new devices showing up in their Apple support profiles and in UPS order tracking. We've seen quite a few reports of iPhone 7 Plus orders showing up, but it's not clear if iPhone 7 units are shipping in volume yet.

U.S. customers can try to find their orders by using the "Track by Reference" function on the UPS website and searching with their phone numbers, typically the phone number associated with the Apple ID under which the order was made. The Apple order number minus the last two digits may also work. UPS customers who have My Choice accounts may already see their shipments showing up on their accounts without even needing to search.

The first wave of shipments is scheduled to arrive to customers on Friday, with delivery services holding packages until that date even if they arrive to regional hubs early. It is not unusual, however, for a few packages to slip through and arrive a day ahead of schedule for a handful of lucky customers.

Guys just spoke to an Apple specialist. They told me everyone here needs call Apple and ask for the "Spicy tuna salad special of the day". Once you do that, they will transfer you to "Big Tony". Tell "Big Tony" what your problem is. "Big Tony" will make sure you are taken care of. Cause no one says no to "Big Tony"...

Just a quick PSA: Don't freak out if your tracking information doesn't appear. Every time I preorder an Apple product, my tracking information seems to be later than everyone else. In fact, I couldn't get tracking info for my AW until *after* it was already delivered. They still always arrive on time. Happy waiting!

Screw the iPhone 6SS, I need a new MacBook Pro! Come on Apple.
Because heaven forbid we have thread that doesn't include whining about the lack of Mac updates. There will be NO news for you until about a month from now. In the meantime, go rain on someone else's parade.
