Some iPhone XS shipments have come late to the impatient (results)
by Daniel Petrov / Sep 26, 2018, 6:47 AM
Phone XS and XS Max delivery schedules by UPS, we asked you last week whether your shipment was still on time for a delivery on Apple's official release date.
More than half of our respondents answered affirmatively, and typically the delivery date changed to this week after sitting valid for launch date for a while. Some noticed that the delivery reverted back to Friday, while 38% saw no changes in the delivery estimates from the get-go.
The delivery date for plenty of iPhone XS, XS Max, or Apple Watch packages has moved to September 24, instead of Friday, complained buyers. This seems to be a glitch in the system, despite UPS reps' explanations that Apple may have hit its delivery quota threshold set by the postal service contract all of a sudden.
The new iPhone XS, XS Max, and Apple Watch are supposed to be loaded on trucks overnight and start getting to their destinations today but don't be surprised if you had your date pushed for Monday. Some users noticed a reversal in the dreadful September 24 shipment switch back to Friday, so not all hope was lost for getting the tracked package on time.
Has your iPhone XS, XS Max or Apple Watch pre-order shipment been delayed?
It was, but now it reverted back to September 21

You can walk into the Apple stores around here and pick one up. So I guess these are stories to help pent-up the demand for the latest iPhones.

Why there isn’t news about Samsung having this problem?

Samsung is not a small player (4th or 5th) like apple in smartphone industry. They are world leader....and the leader always keeps everything well managed. Samsung = leader >>>apple

Trolling must be so much fun Samsung manages to sell 80M phones per quarter on a average since 2011, a d only a couple times you ever heard demand exceed supply. Because Samsung knows its supply demands and spends the money to meet them. Apple knows their demand every year too, but simply cheap out on supply. It's just an early rush. They can only make so many in a month. Most iPhone preorder always eat up the supply. Considering carriers have to buy them too. And retailers a d end users. Samsung just knows how to totally manage demand and supply. When you consider the fact, Samsung sells far and away more models, in more countries and to more carriers than Apple does. Open your eyes dude and stop being such a trolling fan. Samsung is just a better company over all smartphone OEMS right now. It's not a out making money, but how you spend it.

If only Samsung could sell at least half the numbers of iPhone XS with the Note 9, they know most people would spend their money on 50-100$ Samsung models and not on their “flagships”, nobody cares about Samsung and that’s why they are flopping and hemorrhaging customers to huawei and xiaomi, and Apple keeps steady sales with premium prices, Samsung wishes :(

I walked in AT&T last Friday (launch day) and walked out with a new XS. This new sucks for people that pre-ordered and now they have to wait, as opposed to just walking into a brick and mortar store and getting one.

Not sure if my wife reserved mine, preordered it, or just walked in and got it (she won’t tell me), but she shocked me with a 256 gold Max this past Saturday...in the Apple Store while I was buying my Series 4, and hers. I don’t think sales have been as outrageous as they normally are, but the phones are doing just fine.
