So many things I'd love to grab this season, but dang my family is feeling the pinch from all the inflation. We've cut back on most luxury/fun type things and are just keeping our heads down. I'm sure its like that for many folks this season.

Two hours? More like never.

Remember, this is the service where Apple uses shady drivers from Uber Eats and Postmates. High chance of them disappearing with your package and indicating they cancelled your pickup. You’ll spend days with Apple telling them it was never delivered and they’ll tell you it was.
I recently ordered an ipad with courier delivery and rhey used Uber Eats. I agree it is a shame Apple is ysing this and not being upfront about it.

My iPad box was bumped and wrinkled in a few corners as well as scratched, and the stickers and wrapping on the pencil case looked strange and crooked.

I read bad things about Uber Eats deliveries and, considering the potential for problems, returned my order myself. I’m the sort of person who will wonder “is my ipad acting up because the idiot driver dropped it on the way here? Was my pencil a counterfeit because it is acting strange and the stickers weere weird”. Not worth it IMO.

Yea I barely trust them with food because they can't follow directions or take forever or forget something. But at least that's only maybe $20, and if I report it, they will believe me and credit/refund
