Apple Offers Free Two-Hour Holiday Delivery on Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch Orders

Apple is offering free two hour delivery when customers purchase any Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone, or Mac, which is ideal for last minute shoppers.

Through December 24 at 4:00 p.m. local time, customers who live in an area where courier delivery is available can get their orders for free. Apple normally charges $9 for same-day courier delivery.


Apple says that its courier delivery is available "in most metros," and it applies to the total order whenever an ‌Apple Watch‌, ‌iPad‌, ‌iPhone‌, or Mac is ordered. AirPods aren't available for free courier delivery on a standalone order basis, but can be included with other purchases.

For deliveries that do not include an ‌Apple Watch‌, ‌iPad‌, ‌iPhone‌, or Mac, courier options are still available, but Apple is charging the standard $9 fee. Delivery cutoff is December 24 in most areas, but Apple says that December 25th delivery is available in New York City, Las Vegas, and Hawaii.

Those who are not in an area where courier delivery is available can still get items before Christmas by using in-store pickup options.

What a world. You can lay in bed on a super computer, order another super computer with face authentication and by the time you've gotten dressed and watched some Rick and Morty streamed over the Internet to a giant television, a person knocks on your door to delivery something built in China just a few days ago which is 2X faster than your year old super computer with 2 extra cameras and faster face authentication and better water proofing.

seriously what a time to be alive.

EDIT: Also applies to how freaking awesome our dual core Dick Tracy watches are that can also be ordered on your super computer.

This devalues the phrase super computer to the point of meaninglessness.


No it doesn't. Smart people understand the intent and nature of adamjackson's post.

The funny thing is consumer stores had delivery before WWII. It was the post-war self-service store and car boom that ended it. What's old is new again.


I suspect it works in those areas where it doesn't really matter.


Available here in the suburbs. Nearest Apple store is 20 minutes away at a mall with always bad parking. They're using those couriers like Dynamex and OnTrac that Amazon used before they in-housed.

Really, as someone born in 70's and seen the evolution of technology from finger dial to butt dial, this post makes perfect sense! Todays smartphones are equal to what we called super computers just 2 decades ago.

I had no idea Apple even offered this courier service for $9... that's amazing.


No kidding. $9 is a steal already, and kinda makes this "free delivery" a bit of a cheap gift. I find the "two hours" more amazing than anything else. That's Amazon-level logistics!

I was about 13 when our household switched from pulse dialing to tone dialing. My parents couldn't understand why that was important, and I switched the house over without asking permission. hahahaha

I've used the Courier service. It's great. Though my wallet says it is also very dangerous. :p

Don’t forget the big tip the courier expects. Almost free, but not quite.


In my area they use Postmates. The courier sent me a text message not-so-subtly suggesting I pay a cash tip to help offset the cost of their personal car and fuel. That was a little awkward coming from a trillion dollar company (or its independent contractor, in this case).

MacRumors is usually quite good at mentioning region availability etc. I assume this doesn't apply outside the US? You know you do have international readers, right?
