Some iPhone XS shipments have come late to the impatient (results)

After numerous complaints about abrupt changes in the new iPhone 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 XSXS 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.
