Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 start shipping in the US

However, some of those early pre-orders have already been shipped today, so many customers will receive their new iPhones as early as September 21. Obviously, that won't happen if you pre-order them today for the reasons we've mentioned above.
It's not something unusual for Apple to exhaust its first wave of iPhones almost every year, so it's not really a surprise that customers who place pre-orders now will have to wait at least one more week to actually receive them.
So, if you're among those who placed early pre-orders, you'll most likely receive your iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or Apple Watch Series 4 on September 21, the same day all these devices should hit the stores.

The delays should be close to non existent, especially at those asking prices. Besides all the XS Max has over the regular XS is a bigger screen. But iPhones still don't offer any real phablet functionality what so ever. So it's just a bigger screen for the sake of getting a bigger screen only. Can anyone remember 7 inches tablets? So the XS Max is closer to 7 inch tablet, than it is to the original iPhones with their 3.5 inch - 4 inch displays. Apple has to rethink real multitasking and split screen multitasking, because users were saying that the iPhone screens are too small. Now what's the excuse? Can anyone tell us? Or is this about Apples locked down wall garden controls again?

I hear you, but these aren't huge selling factors for Apple to sell their products. It's the eco system. Every buyer practically has a minimum of 3 Apple products...iPhone, iPad, Airpods, Macbook, Airpods, Apple TV, etc...

I think Ipads can do split screen so not sure why apple doesn't allow the XS Max to do so as well. I also think preorders have been lower this year because of high prices. Wondering how the Note 9 is doing also because it is also high priced. Biggest problem with the note 9 is no OS updates after next year maybe the year after so your $1k investment doesn't last as long...

I've seen this all over other sites. Why hasn't there been a write up about it here?

They wont do it, they would rather put up a camera comparison for us to chose.

No s**t. So you want to brag that the iPhone does not have the best camera. This is an artical about them shipping. No body even has one really. So what and why do you think they won’t. Do you know the comparison was correct.
