Apple Watch Series 7 Already Facing November Delivery for Some Models

Apple Watch Series 7 pre-orders began minutes ago and some configurations are already facing extended delivery estimates into November on Apple's online store in the United States, including some aluminum and stainless steel options.

Some customers have expressed their frustration that Apple did not provide more details on Series 7 configurations and pricing prior to pre-orders beginning, forcing some people to decide which model they wanted to purchase in the heat of the moment. For customers who did not manage to pre-order their desired Apple Watch for launch day delivery, some configurations will likely be available for Apple Store pickup on launch day.

Apple Watch Series 7 pricing starts at $399 for aluminum models, $699 for stainless steel models, and $799 for titanium models. Apple has finally updated its Apple Watch Studio page that helps with choosing a case, size, and band, and the Apple Watch comparison page is also now updated to reflect the Series 7's tech specs.

Apple Watch Series 7 will begin arriving to customers and launch in stores on Friday, October 15.

This is ridiculous. Some models are even showing ‘unavailable’ giving no option to even buy it. Was considering buying one, but Im going to take this as a sign that I should wait until next year.

Most of the models and configurations were never available for launch day. No one is getting a stainless model delivered before November. What a crock.
We are living in extremely tough times at the moment. It's just sad that so many of us have to endure this level of suffering. Stay strong buddy!

***Guys, this was expected, its not Apple's fault China is having rolling black-outs, there is low chip inventory and high demand on products, so don't be surprised if things get worse before they get better***

Titanium models may have started with Oct 26-28 delivery dates. I had mine ordered within 30 seconds of the store opening and never saw a date sooner than that.

it also depends what band you want. My wife picked one and it will deliver October 28. I ordered her watch with a different band and it would deceiver October 15th.
