  • Apple Watch Orders Quoted for June Delivery Start "Preparing for Shipment"


    Just two days ago, Apple began shipping changing the order statuses of many pre-orders for the Apple Watch from "Processing Order" to "Preparing for Shipment." The status changes seemed to only affect those with April 24th to May 8th deliveries at that point in time, although as of Wednesday, Apple appears to also be marking orders quoted for a delivery far into June as "Preparing for Shipment," suggesting that some pre-orders could arrive earlier than expected.

    It is worth mentioning that some people who have been quoted with April 24th to May 8th shipping estimates still have yet to be charged on their credit card for their pre-orders or even achieve "Preparing for Shipment" status, so it's questionable as to why Apple's Web site is taking care of those with later shipping estimates first since the pre-order process is supposed to be on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Apple did notably offer priority expedited shipping to some randomly-selected application developers this week. This is a courtesy from Apple so developers can start getting their applications ready for the new device.

    While some Apple Watches are still supposed to arrive on pre-orderers' doorsteps starting this Friday, others will need to wait a while due to the supply constraints that Apple is having at the moment due to manufacturing difficulties with the displays.

      That's why they are not going to sell them in Apple Stores which I think it's good and fair for all.

      Still processing here and preordered the second the website went live at 3:07am EST. I'm in the May 13th ship date.
      I think it was poor preparation that the IOS app went live well before the website.

      Same, same, and same. Same thing happened with iP6 launch. I guess from now on I will just order from the app and forget the website. You'd think it would be the other way around.

      Does your status show "Preparing for Shipment" or "Shipped" and where did you find the info to track?

      Download UPS app from App Stiote, make an account with the app and once you log in, from the menu in the top left choose access my UPS Choice and there will be your Apple Watch shipment information. That's if you used the same address you are using on UPS as your shipping address. They use your address to find your shipment information, no tracking number. It doesn't matter your status as long as Apple charged your credit card already. Mine is showing shipped, but I checked before when it was showing preparing for shipment.
