A number of Apple customers are discovering that their iPhone 12 orders have started shipping, but while delivery reports show that orders are on their way, it is unlikely that the deliveries themselves will take place before Apple’s release date of October 23.
Following the opening of pre-orders on Thursday, Apple has been inundated with orders for two of its flagship smartphone series in 2020. Sales of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro began on October 16, with the large number of orders pushing estimated delivery dates back for late buyers. November.
For those who are lucky enough to secure an order within the opening hours after availability, there will be an anxious waiting time for their orders, which has led to someone examining the progress of the orders. According to posts on social media, some orders have actually been sent.
Despite the encouraging signs of delivery tracking, it is very unlikely that many of them will result in an early delivery of iPhones to their new owners before October 23. With previous deliveries, Apple has worked with delivery partners to try to maintain the set release date for the products, and it is unlikely that such guidelines have changed for the latest release.
Only two models of the iPhone have been pre-ordered so far, with the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max expected to be made available for order from November 6, with a launch date of November 13.
While iPhone orders are unlikely to arrive on Apple’s street date, customers who also ordered accessories have begun to receive their purchases. This includes the recently announced MagSafe charger, as well as cases for the new models.
