I know it only seems like everyone I know got an Apple Watch today, but my Twitter feed is full of photos of white boxes.
My watch order confirmation shows a 12:06am US/Pacific timestamp, but my order hasn’t even moved into “preparing for shipment” status yet. I saw one note on Twitter that indicated the cutoff for this first batch was likely 12:03am. I couldn’t even get the Apple Store app to load until around that time. I wonder how many orders were placed in those first few minutes.
Or perhaps the delay in delivery has to do with shortages for specific models. I ordered the Steel + Milanese Loop band, where most of the deliveries I’ve seen so far are for the Sport model. My order still shows a 4/24-5/8 delivery window, so I guess I’ll be seeing it sometime in the next two weeks.
@alexkingorg My confirmation email was 12:04 AM for a sport, space gray watch and delivery estimate is May 13-27!
@chuck415 That seems to support a shortage-by-model explanation.
@alexkingorg Yes, it does.
@alexkingorg Same here – what makes it worse is my wife got hers today!
