Just two days after pre-orders began, Apple has sprung into action and has already begun shipping the first batch of iPhone 13 orders to early buyers. Unfortunately, however, this does not mean you can expect your iPhone 13 pre-order to arrive any earlier than the 24th of September, the official release date.
If you check your order status via the Apple Store Online or Apple Store App, you will likely see that your iPhone 13 pre-order is still ‘preparing to ship’. But, if you head to the logistics partner’s website, you can track the progress of your order and watch it make its way all the way to your respective state.
Carrier UPS will be the primary shipping service that Apple is going with, the logistics company has made changes to the ‘Track by Reference Number’ feature, to limit the ‘display of reference number tracking details for improved security, this means that you will get the best experience by enrolling in the UPS Choice Platform.
Once you do find your particular package, you can track it as it travels around the world and arrives at your doorstep on 24th September.
Apple ensures that you do not receive your package before the scheduled release date, remember that Apple is no longer including headphones or a charging brick in the iPhone 13 this year due to environmental concerns.
